The SETI League's Volunteer Coordinator for Ukraine
Alexey V. Arkhipov was born in Kharkov (East Ukraine) in 1959. His education includes an M.S. in astronomy (Kharkov State University 1981) and a
Ph.D. in astrophysics and radio astronomy (Main Astronomical Observatory of
Nat. Acad. Sci. of Ukraine, Kyiv, 1998). His
Dissertation was titled "New approaches to the problem of search for extra-terrestrial intelligence".
Alexy's professional experience includes the following SETI-related positions:
In addition to SETI, his area of specialization includes studying the
Decametric radio emmissions of Jupiter.
- 1980-84 Engineer, Scientific Researcher, Institute of Radiophysics and Radiophysics and Electronics, Acad. Sci. Ukrainian SSR.
- 1984- Scientific Researcher, Institute of Radio Astronomy, Nat. Acad. Sci. of Ukraine.
Alexey is a member of the Society for Planetary Research (SPSR), and of the
SETI Center, Moscow, Russia. Here are abstracts of two of his current research activities:
Project SAAM (Search for Alien Artifacts on the Moon) was developed by the author in 1992. The
justifications of Lunar SETI, the wording of specific principles
of lunar archaeology and the search for promising areas on the
Moon were the first stage of the project (1992-95). Already obtained
results of lunar exploration show that the search for alien
artifacts on the Moon is a promising SETI-strategy especially in
context of the lunar colonization plans.
The purpose of the second SAAM stage is the search for
promising objects on the Moon for archaeological reconnaissance
in the future. Computer algoritms are proposed and realised for
automatic search for unusual formations on Clementine's HIRES
images. This survey is in progress.
The author has shown that finds of extraterrestrial artifacts
are possible on the Earth, even if visits of extraterrestrials to
the Earth were not realised. Even without interstellar flights,
the spontaneous leakage of interplanetary debris into the
interstellar medium is inevitable (by e.g. gravitational interaction
with the planets). That is why I am collecting information about
promising finds in prehuman layers and among pseudometeorites.
