We are designing a next-generation adaptive optics-fed integral field spectrograph (IFS) and imaging camera for the W. M. Keck Observatory. This innovative instrument, known as Liger, will be crucial for exploring a wide range of science cases across cosmic time, such as dark matter substructure, distant galaxies, supermassive black holes, nearby star forming regions, the Galactic Center, and Solar System bodies. Liger is designed to be a facility-class instrument that will enable new science…

In the paper we propose another way in contacting other civilizations. We give an explanation why Fermi paradox exists ie we explain the Great Silence.
