Breakthrough Listen is just one part of the Breakthrough Initiatives scheme, the aim of which is to end humanity’s universal reputation as that shy guy at the party nursing a drink and talking to himself.In a 2015 paper entitled Breakthrough Listen – A new search for life in the universe, a group of scientists behind the project outlined the methods they hope will finally answer the question: is anyone out there?Identifying stars which might support life upon their orbiting worlds is a daunting challenge, as there are an estimated 100 billion to 400 billion stars in our Milky Way galaxy alone.
