If humanity wished to let the other (so far hypothetical) denizens of the Universe know that the Solar System is inhabited by a technological species, what would be one or more good ways to do it?
This is not the proper forum for this kind of thing. This forum is for science, which has a certain methodology to it. UFOology can't be studied within the methodology of science. i recommend the New Theories forum at http://www.thenakedscientists.com/forum/index.php?board=18.0
Please point out in my original post where I said anything about UFOs. Many scientists believe it is a strong possibility that we are not the only intelligent life in the Universe (but that it has yet to be detected or proven). This has nothing to do with Ufology, alien abductions or any such similar matters.
Semantics. You know what I meant. Tell me - What part of that do you think is something subject to the study of physics? The subject matter is as I said, UFOology, which means aliens which means intelligent life elsewhere in the universe, etc.
Cosmology is the study of the origins and eventual fate of the universe. Physical cosmology is the scholarly and scientific study of the origin, evolution, structure, dynamics, and ultimate fate of the universe, as well as the natural laws that keep it in order.
Astronomy is a natural science that is the study of celestial objects (such as moons, planets, stars, nebulae, and galaxies), the physics, chemistry, mathematics, and evolution of such objects, and phenomena that originate outside the atmosphere of Earth, including supernovae explosions, gamma ray bursts, and cosmic background radiation. A related but distinct subject, cosmology, is concerned with studying the universe as a whole.
Astrobiology is the study of the origin, evolution, distribution, and future of life in the universe: extraterrestrial life and life on Earth.
Ufology is the study of unidentified flying objects. Something doesn't have to be alien in origin to be a UFO. Surely you don't think that the study of strange lights in the sky at night is a concept that is conflatable with the idea that we might be able to alert intelligent life forms which live in distant star systems to our presence? The connotations are entirely different.
The point is that science is not something capable of addressing what you're talking about, period.
