Here Soviet scientists were trying to prove existence of extra-terrestrial civilizations. The chief astronomer working at “Ziminki” was Vsevolod Troitsky – the first figure from the USSR to participate in the world project SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence).

They researched eleven stars of solar type located in the radius of 100 light years away from the Sun and galaxy M31 (Andromeda Nebula). Each object was being watched for 10 minutes.
