Researchers Warn of Potential Eavesdropping by Extraterrestrials on 5G Networks

Scientists have raised concerns about the possibility of aliens eavesdropping on our phone conversations through 5G networks.

In a recent study, researchers investigated the radio leakage emitted by Earth and its potential detectability by beings from other planets. They focused on the radio signals emitted by 4G mobile towers to assess the likelihood of Martians tuning into these transmissions.

The primary objective of the study was to understand the overall power contribution of mobile communication towers and their impact on potential extraterrestrial eavesdropping. The researchers determined that currently, extraterrestrial civilizations within 10 light-years of Earth would not be able to detect mobile communication signals due to their relatively weak strength.

However, the researchers suggest that as communication technologies advance, such as with the deployment of 5G networks, the likelihood of our planet being noticed by alien civilizations could increase.

Led by Ramiro Saide from the University of Mauritius, the study plans to extend its investigation to include the more potent 5G mobile system. The researchers reference a previous study conducted in 1978 by astronomer Woodruff Sullivan, who proposed the idea that aliens could potentially intercept television signals from Earth.

Saide and his team concluded that the periodic nature of Earth’s radio leakage, including contributions from mobile communication towers, aligns with the findings presented by Sullivan et al. They stated, “This is not unexpected, as the Earth rotates and the distribution of towers across its surface is non-uniform in nature.”

Regarding detectability, the study concluded that any nearby civilization within 10 light-years of Earth, equipped with a receiving system comparable to the GBT (Green Bank Telescope), would not be able to identify Earth’s mobile tower leakage.

However, the researchers caution that as mobile systems, especially with the advent of 5G and future technologies, continue to evolve, the power of these emissions is likely to increase over time. If such leakage can be detected, extraterrestrial observers could potentially gain insights into our planet’s nature and the distribution of technology across its surface.

While the possibility of aliens eavesdropping on our phone calls remains speculative, it serves as a reminder of the potential risks and unintended consequences that come with advancing communication technologies.
