    Chances of
    earth being detected by alien life forms are disappearing because
    of the digital revolution, a leading space scientist has claimed.

    Dr Frank Drake
    said the phasing out of analogue transmissions from television,
    radio and radar was making our planet electronically invisible from
    outer space.

    While old style
    signals used to spread out millions of miles into outer space, even
    reaching some distant stars, digital transmissions are much weaker
    and therefore are less easy to detect by extra-terrestrial life
    forms.

    Scientists
    on earth are constantly monitoring the heavens for any sign of transmissions
    from other planets and it is assumed other life forms out there
    will be doing the same.

    But Dr Drake,
    who founded the US based organisation Search for Extra-terrestrial
    Intelligence (SETI), 50-years ago, said the phasing out of analogue
    transmissions was making this virtually impossible.
