A new study suggests that the sun’s gravity could be used to create a giant telescope that would magnify signals, both incoming and outgoing. The study also suggests that stronger signals could be achieved by using relay spacecraft to create a network connected by “radio bridges.”
Claudio Maccone, technical director of the Paris-based International Academy of Astronautics, and author of this new study on the mechanics of the proposed technique, explained, “If we use the sun as a gravitational lens, then we can keep in touch with our own probes even at considerable interstellar distances.”
The study appeared in a recent issue of the journal Acta Astronautica.
is nassa sending any space probe to the sun to see weather or not its gravity wave can be use for detecting earth like planets or communication with ETs. please reply
