Astronomers have identified 29 planets that are well placed for intelligent life to observe Earth.

According to the news in The Guardian, Cornell University professor of astronomy Lisa Kaltenegger and astrophysicist Jackie Faherty of the American Museum of Natural History prepared star positions based on data from the European Space Agency’s “Gaia” satellite to find out which star systems are in a good position to observe Earth transit. and consulted the catalog of movements.

Kaltenegger and Faherty identified 2,034 star systems within 326 light-years that could explore Earth as they pass around the Sun at any time from 5,000 years ago to 5,000 years later.

“One way we find planets is if they block some of the light from their host stars,” Kaltenegger said. used the phrase.

It is estimated that the 29 planets in these star systems, which are considered to be habitable, are in a good position to explore the Earth and listen to the radio and television broadcasts.
