If some massive interstellar space opera Society existed in our galaxy would we of definitely observe them by now? Assuming there was no sort of attempted to hide nor contact backwards planets we would see saying stuff like old radio singles wouldn't we?

We could only answer this question accurately if we had experience with galactic societies.
You're asking a question we don't have enough real-world experience to answer.

>Assuming there was no sort of attempted to hide
Perfect example. Why would you assume this?

>>7761712
>see saying stuff like old radio singles wouldn't we?
Probably not. The inverse-square law makes it very unlikely we'll ever pick up stray radio broadcasts from other solar systems.
>>
>>7761723
Yeah that, because if they were years ahead of us they probably would have developed TV one stage in the history if they eventually built starships wouldn't they? But the image of near by aliens watching 50 sitcom is unlikely then?
>>
>>7761727
I hope they like fresh prince as much as we do.

This inverse-square law argument is nonsense. We detect radio signals from far away places all the time. (i.e. Super novas, Pulsars) So why couldn't aliens pick up "I love Lucy"?

Yeah and they're millions if not billions of years old. Are you really this dense?

The film is not all that scientificaly accurate

Our galaxy is only about 100k lightyears across retard.

WHY DO PEOPLE DO THIS

REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

>>7762150
Are all of the pulsars we observe from within our galaxy?
>>
>>7762401
Because when spoken "would've" though obviously a contraction for "would have" sounds a bit like "would of" so in writing people with no knowledge of grammar write it as such
>>
>>7762074
please tell me which is orders of magnitudes bigger

typical reference nova output: ~10^42 joules

typical TV broadcast tower output: ~180000000 joules

Well let's narrow down it a bit more.

How much of a 'radio footprint' does earth create through use of satellite communication. Assuming a technological society will create that much background noise in not much more, how visible does that become to Stellar neighbours?

Could earth detected from Alpha Centauri for example just from its background noise by the local equivalent of SETI?
