Looking for life
Stellar Tiramisu: Astronomers Find Hints of Distant Planetary Pollution

This article was different from what I expected.

This misunderstanding gave me an idea.

Reading a science magazine yesterday, a scientist suggested that when looking for life on other planets, we look not at chemistry, but for signs of intelligence. He obviously was referring to technologically advanced societies.
The reference to "planetary pollution" shown above gave me an idea.
When looking for "intelligent" life, we should be looking for pollution.
