Researchers: Large "porch light" could attract aliens to Earth

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (WIVB) - Researchers say attracting aliens to Earth could be as easy as leaving a very large "porch light" on.

MIT released an image, along with a study from researchers.

The study says the light from a laser could spark interest from extraterrestrials, if they exist.

The powerful laser would be focused through a telescope aimed toward space.

The author of the study says the necessary lasers have already been invented, but they still need a large enough telescope.
