Hidden Mysteries Of The Universe - US Telescope Scans
The Massachusetts observatory unveiled light signals transmitted to Earth by extraterrestrials by a new telescope.

It will cover 100,000 times the amount of sky covered by current equipment -according to the developers of the new telescope.

Space exploration and funding the telescope's development are the Planetary Society's work.

Betts said: It is the alien civilizations, whom use light signals to communicate as radio transmissions.

Harvard University's Smithsonian Centre for Astrophysics' Oak Ridge Observatory built the telescope, using an 84-foot radio telescope.

A typical research-quality telescope is costlier than this new telescope - about 400,000 dollars. So it costs a little lesser than older - says Betts.
