21) Message boards : SETI@home Science : SETI-Map View, Need Range and Bearing info of E.T. (Message 1327189)
Posted 458 days ago by Profile Eric Rojas Chiong
Hi,

Yes, we can fix a source from the cone (for example- a bearing taken from the month of June and another bearing taken from January of the SAME source - hence opposite side of the Sun), giving us range. I believe this is how they are able to map out our Galaxy from the MilkyWay@Home project and others like the Atlas project (mapping out Dark Matter in the Universe). I was wondering if anyone took on this or any other type of method of getting us range (Distance) for SETI. It would be nice if Bjorn Henke would incorporate this data (range Info) in his MapView software. So far, the only info we get from MapView v6.55 is bearing (direction) info. The range info can help in many ways including the determination of RFI (Radio Freq. Interference) from aircraft and satellites. If the source (within the hydrosphere spectrum, 1.4 Ghz +- 50 hz) is outside our solar system, we can conclude from our analysis that the source is E.T. and not RFI based on process of elimination method. I wouldn't be too surprised of the results (E.T. Conclusion) since this analytical method of determination is practiced among many US Navy Acoustic Analyst operators every day. I think Mr Seth Shostak would not buy anyone coffee if this software gets developed since many of the signals would be concluded as E.T. and not RFI. Mr Seth Shostak is right about one thing, the technology development is exponential.

Hi everyone,

Just wondering if anybody knows a 3-dimensional mapping view software of the signals (Radio Frequency sources - Peak, Guassians, Pulse, Triplets). Kind of like Universe Sandbox, however, synchronized with BOINC data. It would be nice to incorporate the BOINC data with Universe Sandbox giving us range and bearing of the signal source. The current release from Bjorn Henke v 6.54 just calculates bearing, not range.

Thanks.

Posted 683 days ago by Profile Eric Rojas Chiong
With Andromeda and Triangulum galaxies slowly (relatively) approaching us and colliding within 4.5 Billion years due to Doppler Shift, shouldn't we be broadcasting to the universe an "SOS" message so that our species can survive? Due to the slow RF velocity in space, I believe we should be broadcasting a distress signal now so that the rescue party will have ample time to make preparation of rescuing most of the life found on this planet.
Maybe this discovery of "all" discoveries is the reason why human technologies evolved, since Galileo changes in Astronomy and the first flight of the Wright Brothers in Kitty Hawk North Carolina.


Actually, I am not really worried of planet collisions (although it still may occur). I am more worried about what gravity is going to do with the polarity of this planet as solor systems passes each others during the galaxies "mergers".

Cool. Now we can look for "RFI" on those planets. Too bad we don't have a 3-D skymap (Star Charts) so we can get a fix on those "RFI". I intended to see RF (Radio Frequencies) not "C"ommunicate (CETI vs SETI) with them. Its possible, just like acoustic signals on the Earths Oceans.
26) Message boards : SETI@home Science : RFI within Milky Way Galaxy - Process of Elimination of E.T.'s signals (Message 1078306)
Posted 1153 days ago by Profile Eric Rojas Chiong
Equation: Regarding RFI determination by: 1) Process of elimination of E.T. signals (i.e. cannot be E.T.), 2)RF analysis of non-E.T., 3) Persistency Checker algorithm of non-E.T., and 4) 3-Dimensional fixing of non-E.T. signals

....from the Adobe "pdf format file of "CANDIDATE IDENTIFICATION AND INTERFERENCE REMOVAL IN SETI@HOME" by Eric J. Korpela, Jeff Cobb, Matt Lebofsky, Andrew Siemion, Joshua Von Korff, Robert C. Bankay, Dan Werthimer and David Anderson Space Sciences Laboratory at the University of California Mail Code 7450, Berkeley, CA 94720-7450, USA korpela@ssl.berkeley.edu

I was wondering if there is a 3D version of the Mapview "Skymap" from Bjorn Henke v6.54 when used with BOINCLogX software. Persistency checkers are good, as well as RF analysis (Triplets-Doppler, Gaussian, etc.). However, the ability to crossfix an RF signal (RFI or non-RFI) within our own Milky Way Galaxy can help resolve an E.T. signals, in my opinion. As a veteran of RF chasers ("AW" Anti-Sub Warfare Operator) from the US Navy, I believe that a 3-D Mapview can isolate an "RF" (RFI or non-RFI) signals from within our own Galaxy, thereby determining "valid" E.T. signals. For example, if we crossfix a signal (whatever it is) from within one of the Milky Way Galaxy Spiraling arm, I know at that point (depending on the persistency checker) that it becomes "possible" that it was an E.T. "signature". Why, a source created it and I know it exists outside of our technology range, so far. We as humans haven't landed outside of any planets or moons outside of our solar systems. Neil Armstrong - moon.
I definetly need a 3-D maping systems with the Arecibo or any other observatory.

While Albert Einstein is working on going faster than the speed of light (E=mc ^ 2), I am working on the next step and further. Going faster than the speed of Ultraviolet, the X-Rays and Gamma Rays. LOL : ) By the way, we haven't gone faster than the speed of light yet, its not possible according to top scientist and billions of people, only faster than the speed of sound so far by Chuck Yeager in 1947.

What Freqs are we chasing? Hydrosphere on Earth size mass for long range detection? This is better than chasing submarines, ships, earthquakes, etc.

Amazing isn't it. Personally, I hope that other software processing issue besides the Fast Fourier would be refined, such as the spectrum analysizers like the US Navy have in isolating discreet frequencies.

As a former AW (Anti-Submarine-Acoustic Analyst) for the Navy, we should be tracking planets with a "Hydrosphere" instead of my old job as a submarine/ships analyst. Consequently, whatever is on the surface of the planets with a hydrosphere, well thats another story. I am not a zoologist. The Keck Observatory looks for a Hydrosphere within the visible spectrum if I am not mistaken. The Arecibo should be looking for a Hydrosphere within the microwave spectrum as well.

USN stands for United States Navy, AW stands for Anti-Submarine Warfare Operator. I have a little bit of RF analysis experience applied for the oceans, not space, however, it is quite similar with a few differences noted with the KECK Observatory astronomers.

Hi John,

Yes, I have a little bit of knowledge regarding radio transmission on earth, but not in space. Space is a different medium but the physics of radio transmission still remains the same. Radio transmission in different spectrum, ie sound, visibler light and others spectrum.

Posted 1212 days ago by Profile Eric Rojas Chiong
By the way, I believe the only reason why we use copper element as the medium for electrical use, is economy, i,e. its cheaper to produce. However, how do we know that other medium (element) like plastic or silicon or other types is much better to pass electromagnetic signals, in different frequencies for power etc? My opinion, highly advance (evolve) species would be probably be using something more efficient and effectively, whatever that is. As far as economy is concerned, how do we know that they (highly evolved species) measure survivabilty based on our kind of credit systems, if there are any? Fortunately, there are alot of different ideas out there since 1947 a.d. (gregorian calendar system) on how a highly evolved species would survive in a dangerous Universe filled with different kinds of energy (including planets, etc). After watching the movie "Contact" starring Jodie Foster, 1997 with my roomates last night, I basically started thinking of all the different possibilities that a highly evolved (Charles Darwin-Origin Species) would exist. The greatest question of all, "How did you do it?" referencing the question posed to Ancient Astronaut (E.T.) on how their species survived without destroying themselves. Another good movie is "Mission to Mars" 2000 a.d., especially at the end of the movie (Darwinsm with a twist).

Nice. It is possible to maybe build a filter and enhance the detection of these frequencies (50-60) range. However, I believe looking for the "Hydrosphere" frequencies of a given Habitable planet would be much better due to being able to find the "age" of the given planet and a guaranteed area of life for Homo Sapiens. The younger the planet, the better, If we are to travel to them and colonize just like North America etc.. One day, just like breaking the speed of "sound" (700 mph roughly) barrier on a given atmosphere, humans will be able to break the "light" (186,000 mps roughly) barrier in space. Just a dream to Chuck Yeager, who by the way, was given the credit to be the first Homo Sapien to do it in Antelope Valley, California, in a Bell X-1, during 1947 a.d.. Our planet is suppose to be around 4.6 Billion years old (Milky Way). In another 4 Billion years from now, its suppose to collide with the Andromeda Galaxy. Based on Doppler. Not good.
Your theory is interesting though, Earth being wired like a submarine or surface ship, thus able to be detected at long range. Even in a different medium like space instead of an ocean.
36) Message boards : SETI@home Science : Water Hole Frequencies within the Microwave Range (Message 1058016)
Posted 1212 days ago by Profile Eric Rojas Chiong
Just wondering if the background noise (1420 to 1720 MHz) is what we are looking for and tracking using BOINCLogX which then gets plotted by SETI@Home Mapview? Or, are we looking for "anything" that shows up persistently and distinctively, within the range of 1420 to 1720 MHz? I thought I was looking at the "water molecules" noise instead of "background" noise.

"Hydrogen atoms emit at 1420 MHz (a wavelength of 21 cm). Hydroxyl molecules, composed of one atom of hydrogen and one atom of oxygen (OH), emit at four specific radio frequencies ranging from 1612 MHz to 1720 MHz. When a hydrogen atom combines with a hydroxyl molecule it forms a molecule of water, the most essential molecule for life as we know it. Thus, the range of frequencies from 1420 to 1720 MHz is called the Water Hole."

How to track and find water "1.4..." (Hydrosphere in Space) 101: Arecibo Telescope

Eric R Chiong, a former USN AW: method of SETI@Home Analysis of Earth-Like planets (Similar to analysing acoustic data in the oceans) and or detecting and traking Water in space:

Ice --- > Water ---> Clouds (Hydrosphere - Hydrogen and Oxygen are the given elements of the Periodic table)
Microorganism ---> 1-3 Billion years of Charles Darwins' Evolution ---> Earthlings! Total of 4.5 billion years, so far!

-Fade-In signals:

From a given Solar System birth (Hubble Telescope) - Planets within the range (Habitable Zone) of the Sun (depending on how hot it is) and with 1-2 Billion years of cooling, denotes the slow development of the "Hydrosphere" of a given planet(s) (Earth-Like). So, basically, "Earth-Like" planets will "fade-in" for about 1 - 2 billion years on the SETI@Home software v6 (the Water Hole - microwave range or spectrum). Included, is the visible spectrum, the "fade-in effect" of the signal traveling at 186,000 mps (Keck telescope) into the Universe.

-Consistent signals:

After 1 - 2 Billion years of planet (Earth-Like) development, a persisent signal (Water-Hole, microwave range or spectrum) will be detectable on SETI@Home software for "x" amount of time until a Cataclysm or other unfortunate event occurs when the atmosphere (Hydrosphere) becomes unstable. Such as a meteor impact or massive Nuclear detonations or others. On Earth, our "Hydrosphere" has been transmitting into the Universe for about 2 - 4 Billion years, so far.

-Abrupt Out or Fade-Out signals:

A Cataclysm (planets colliding) has occurred. That simple. If signals "Fade-Out", then the "other" reasons (nuke detonation, ozone hole depleting, etc) applies.

-As far as the "Doppler" the movement of planets ---> either coming towards (F1) or leaving (F2) earth (true radiated frequency for the Hydrosphere is F0), "MDR"- median detection range, means how strong the signal is (based on intensity, scattering and absorption (by other Galaxies, planetes, etc)), and "CZ" zone (doesn't apply in space), well thats for tracking Earth-like (Habitable) planets.

-By the way, I am not a Zoologist. Whatever is on or below the surface of the "Hydrosphere" planets, well that's another story, depending on what stage of life development - how old the Earth-Like planet is! LOL : ) I am just a space AW/Meteorologist. LOL : )

9:34 AM 12/18/2010 Happy Holidays!!! by the way, "Contact" 1997, with Jodie Foster was pretty good, better with minor modifications of "what" and "how" they are searching for.

Hi again,

One of the best movie like "Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind" Steven Spielberg(30 years ago), is "Contact" with Jodie Foster (1997). I am currently watching re-runs of "Contact" right now. The other good movie is "Mission to Mars" (2000), especially in the end of the movie where the Ancient Astronaut (E.T.) shows the development of life (evolution) on this planet. There is a bug though, I believe it was the microorganism that came from comets and asteriods that spurred life and not a space ship from Ancient Astronauts.

Hi,

True, if it wasn't for the asteriod (Chicxulub Crater, Mexico) hitting the earth 65 million years ago, the dinosaurs would still be here today and probably would still dominate the earth. However, early mammals have already begun there development (evolution) during the Jurrasic period as well before the asteriod arrived in Mexico based on fossil findings (Wikipedia). As far as the "rate of evolution" of mammals, inc humans, some scientist might even say we probably would have evolved much faster considering that we can build tools to protect us from the dangers of the dinosaurs. For example, we could have built barriers and or even a "looking glass" (Telescope) to spot the T-Rex coming instead of looking at planets like Galileo did. The competition for scarce resource would have increase the rate of evolution for mammals, inc. humans. Instead of 2 - 3 billion years, it would have probably be only 1 - 2 billion years with competition of scarce resource from dinosaurs. Unfortunately, though human history is human history. By the way, Galileo didn't invent the telescope. Galileo just knew how to use it.

Eric
