Scientists captured a “radio selfie” of the Earth on the Moon 18:05

American scientists from the University of California at Boulder detected and analyzed radio signals coming from the Earth using the equipment of the Odyssey module located on the Moon. The research was presented at the annual meeting of the American Astronomical Society. society (AAS).

According to the leader of the experiment, Professor Jack Burns, placing a radio observatory on another celestial body made it possible to look at the Earth as an exoplanet, that is, a world orbiting another star.

“This leads us to ask the question: What would our radio emissions from Earth look like if they were coming from an extraterrestrial civilization on a nearby exoplanet?” – Burns were cleaned.

Project Odyssey recorded Earth’s radio background emitted by cellular communications systems, broadcast towers, and other technological sources for an hour and a half. As a result, a data set was collected that represents something like a “radio selfie” of our planet.

The scientist noted that such an experiment was last carried out in the 1990s using NASA’s Galileo spacecraft. The project was led by the famous astronomer, author and science popularizer Carl Sagan. But the information in Odyssey turned out to be more complete and comprehensive.

Researchers plan to conduct a second similar experiment on another lunar module, CLIPS, in 2026.

Earlier Chinese landing took place successfully went down To the far side of the Moon.
