Light-sensing camera may help detect ET life

The Eternal Flame

Nov 19, 2019 Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have made one of the highest-performance cameras ever composed of sensors that count single photons, or particles of light.

Well it wont detect dark matter (if it exists) because that is thought not to interact with the electromagnetic force. As for seeing aliens on other planets we already have telescopes powerful enough to do that. What is stopping us is the glare off stars.

We simply dont know how to remove starlight from images to reveal planets and their surfaces. Can a max resolution picture change that? Not really, it provides better data to work with but we still need to develop the algorithms needed to remove starlight.

We could do with putting a probe into another star system to see what a planet actually looks like, then tweak photograph data our end to identify the differences between the two.
