SCIENTISTS have identified the place where aliens are most likely lurking in the Milky Way.
Using computer simulations, the US team determined that the mysterious centre of our galaxy represents our best hope of finding ET.
That’s assuming other space-faring civilisations exist at all, of course – a question that remains a hot topic among the world’s top experts.
The researchers, Penn State and Columbia University, say their findings could help to steer future missions to find little green men.
The centres of galaxies are “promising search directions” for such missions, they wrote in a research paper published last month.
Computer models were built by the team to determine how alien life might spread across the universe.
