“This method opens a new window in the search for extraterrestrial civilisations,” said Loeb and Turner.
“The search can be extended beyond the Solar System with next generation telescopes on the ground and in space, which would be capable of detecting phase modulation due to very strong artificial illumination on the night-side of planets as they orbit their parent stars.”
