Alien TV, Anyone? Authentic NASA Toys and Replicas
It appears that the Europeans are planning on funding the design for the worlds largest telescope. This telescope will not only be powerful, but it will be able to pick up any alien television stations on nearby stars.

( The "Square Kilometre Array" (SKA) will be an international radio telescope with a collecting area of one million square metres -- equivalent to about 200 football pitches [...] Such a telescope would be so sensitive that it could detect TV Broadcasts coming from the nearest stars.

Although remarkably large this future telescope has the potential of revealing one of the Universes biggest secrets--and potentially disproving Einstein's Theory of Relativity.

( The final design will enable the SKA to probe the cosmos in unprecedented detail, answering fundamental questions about the Universe, such as "what is dark energy?" and "how did the structure we see in galaxies today actually form?".

The new telescope will test Einstein's General Theory of Relativity to the limit -- and perhaps prove it wrong.

The telescope will not be built until 2020, although Italy may have built a telescope on the moon by that time period. Some may see this as a "waste of time" but the purpose of telescopes is not only to gaze at the stars but also find another world to colonize.

You can either visit the stars or watch them from afar.

But if you choose the former, you'll definitely get a better view.
