Until a greater-scale intelligence tries to communicate with us by creating and sending an obviously "intelligent" signal, we'll have only the Count of Monte Cristo option: wait and hope.

New Particle is Detected XI-cc++

LHC double heavy particle to shine light on strong force

"In contrast to other particles of this type, in which the three quarks perform an elaborate dance around each other, a particle with two heavy quarks is expected to act like a planetary system, where the heavy quarks are like two stars orbiting one around the other, with the lighter quark orbiting around this binary system."

"The research team will now measure the properties of the Xi-cc++ to establish how this new arrangement of quarks behaves and how the strong force holds the system together."
