It is understood that the new collaboration will add 1000 new "objects of interest" to the BL target list. The partners will also use Tess's expertise in planetary alignment to improve BL's search strategy, while BL will use Tess's existing data analysis to find strange and irregular tilt in the light.


When a planet passes in front of its star, it will temporarily dim its light, which is the main method to detect exoplanets at present. Given that the orbit of the planet is more or less predictable, but when these dark events are unpredictable, there will be flashes and strange irregularities disappear. Although unlikely, there are some who suspect that this may be the result of large alien Mega buildings built beyond light years.


In addition, the two research teams will study data from the green shore space telescope and the pacos radio telescope, as well as from other observatories around the world.
