The Kardashev scale is a method of measuring a civilization's level of technological advancement, based on the amount of energy a civilization is able to utilize. The scale has three designated categories called Type I, II, and III. A Type I civilization uses all available resources impinging on its home planet, Type II harnesses all the energy of its star, and Type III of its galaxy. The scale is only hypothetical and in terms of an actual civilization, highly speculative; however, it puts energy consumption of an entire civilization in a cosmic perspective. It was first proposed in 1964 by the SovietastronomerNikolai Kardashev. Various extensions to the scale have been proposed since, ranging from a wider range of power levels (types 0, IV and V) to the use of metrics other than pure power.
In 1964, Kardashev defined three levels of civilizations, based on the order of magnitude of the amount of power available to them:
Michio Kaku suggested that humans may attain Type I status in about 100–200 years, Type II status in a few thousand years, and Type III status in about 100,000 to a million years.
" A common speculation suggests that the transition from Type 0 to Type I might carry a strong risk of self-destruction since, in some scenarios, there would no longer be room for further expansion on the civilization's home planet, similar to a Malthusian catastrophe. Excessive use of energy without adequate disposal of heat, for example, could plausibly make the planet of a civilization approaching Type I unsuitable to the biology of the dominant life-formsand their food sources."
This could explain why life elsewhere is not found, while the Drake Equation implies there is a high chance of life elsewhere in the galaxy.
"I don’t think ET is the best word for it. I think it’s more unidentifiable foreign substances or vehicles in the air -- it’s unidentified," Gravel told HuffPost. "I don’t know if it’s little green men or purple men or if it’s any men. All I know is that, worldwide, there’s thousands and thousands of sightings. Some of them may be hallucinatory, but under close examination, there are real sightings. There’s something that we don’t know of."

Discover the early history of UFOs and meet the pioneers that forged it. Classic uncut broadcasts highlight this presentation which includes the original radio news broadcasts about the Roswell Incident, the Washington, DC, 1952 UFO incidents, the famous 1942 Battle for Los Angeles UFO incident, the Kenneth Arnold UFO Sighting, the Michigan Police Chase and Swamp Gas UFO incidents of 1966, the McMinnville, Oregon, UFO incident and the Exeter, NH, UFO sightings. Included are interviews with Al Chop, a former Pentagon Spokesperson who commented on the 1952 Washington, DC, UFO flap; Richard Hall, Don Berliner and Donald Keyhoe of NICAP; James Moseley; the Mikem Wallace interview with Donald Keyhoe and much more including comments from Scientists, Engineers and Astronomers on both sides of the issue.
The annual conference of the British UFO Research Association (Bufora), is a gathering of enthusiasts for unexplained aerial phenomena that might, they speculate, be evidence of extra-terrestrial intelligence. Dozens of them have travelled from around the UK to be here. They listen to guest speakers patiently and attentively. Many carefully take notes during lectures on such topics as "Ghost Rockets", "Political, Cultural and Social Influences of UFOs" and "Behind All The Anomalous Reports".
A recent study soon to be published in The Astrophysical Journal, based upon analysis of data taken from NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope, has found that our Milky Way Galaxy could be host to over 4 billion Earth like planets.
The Drake equation is a probabilistic argument used to estimate the number of active, communicative extraterrestrial civilizations in the Milky Waygalaxy. The equation was written in 1961 by Frank Drake not for purposes of quantifying the number of civilizations, but intended as a way to stimulate scientific dialogue at the world's first SETI meeting, in Green Bank, West Virginia. The equation summarizes the main factors which scientists must contemplate when considering the question of other radio-communicative life. The Drake equation has proved controversial since several of its factors are currently unknown, and estimates of their values span a very wide range. This has led critics to label the equation a guesstimate, or even meaningless.
In September 1959, physicists Giuseppe Cocconi and Philip Morrison published an article in the journal Nature with the provocative title "Searching for Interstellar Communications." Cocconi and Morrison argued that radio telescopes had become sensitive enough to pick up transmissions that might be broadcast into space by civilizations orbiting other stars. Such messages, they suggested, might be transmitted at a wavelength of 21 centimeters (1,420.4 megahertz). This is the wavelength of radio emission by neutral hydrogen, the most common element in the universe, and they reasoned that other intelligences might see this as a logical landmark in the radio spectrum.
Seven months later, radio astronomer Frank Drake became the first person to start a systematic search for intelligent signals from the cosmos. Using the 25 meter dish of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Green Bank, West Virginia. Drake listened in on two nearby Sun-like stars: Epsilon Eridani and Tau Ceti. In this project, that he called Project Ozma, he slowly scanned frequencies close to the 21 cm wavelength for six hours per day from April to July 1960. The project was well designed, cheap, simple by today's standards, and unsuccessful.

Features an amazing array of UFO and Alien TV commercials from around the world. Author and Researcher Peter Robins puts to rest many preconceived beliefs about the impact of UFOs and Aliens portrayed in advertising as part of a plan to prepare society for full disclosure that UFOs are real. Paralleling the past few decades of UFO reports, incidents and alien abduction accounts, UFOs and aliens have had a hand in selling everything from breakfast cereal to computers. Is this simply a matter of the advertising industries taking advantage of imagery already ingrained in popular culture, or is something deeper and more methodical at work here? Get the facts in this detailed presentation. Taped LIVE at the UFO Crash Retrieval Conference.
What will the impact be on religion when extraterrestrial life is discovered? It is a common assumption that such a discovery will be detrimental to core beliefs of religions around the world. You might be surprised to hear, however, that some experts believe the religious impact will be minor. A panel discussion on this topic took place on Sunday, June 24 at the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute’s SETIcon II conference in Santa Clara, California. This panel, titled “Would Discovering ET Destroy Earth’s Religions?,” concluded that the resulting impact on religion from an alien discovery is “probably not going to be as severe as we might initially think.”
