Aliens could be trying to contact humans from a distant constellation, three billion light-years away from Earth. Radio bursts have been detected.
Aliens: Radio Communication
There have been six bursts of radio waves from the constellation Auriga. However, each burst lasted for just a few milliseconds.
While the origin of the waves was still unknown, claims about extraterrestrial life had been made. Furthermore, many believe that these bursts of energy could be extraterrestrial life trying to make contact.
According to Daily Mail, these waves were detected by researchers from McGill University in Montreal. In addition, they had used the Green Bank Telescope in West Virginia and at the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico.
They published a paper in The Astrophysical Journal. In the paper, the researchers, led by Paul Scholz, wrote that they had detected six additional radio bursts from this source.
They found five with the Green Bank Telescope at 2 GHz. They came across one at 1.4 GHz with the Arecibo Observatory, for a total of 17 bursts from this source.
Signals of this sort were also found earlier this year and in 2012.
According to experts, the radio bursts were occurring because of solar flares from a neutron star. The other opinion from experts said that there might be extra-terrestrials.
However, it is too early to be accurate on the issue of extraterrestrial life. Despite uncertainty, the discovery from the Auriga has given rise to exciting speculations.
Aliens: Early Discoveries
In 2015, physicist John Learned and Michael Hippke published a research paper. There, they argued that recurring FRB waves had a 1 in 2,000 chance of being coincidental.
They also declared that the radio bursts could originate from a man-made spy satellite. Furthermore, it could also come from a super-dense star emitting regular bursts, they said.
Another team of astronomers from Laval University in Quebec published a report, previously this year. There, they said that they had detected weird signals in a small cluster of stars, reported The Sun.
“We find that the detected signals have exactly the shape of an ETI [extraterrestrial intelligence] signal,” said Borra and Trottier.
“Although unlikely…there is also a possibility that the signals are due to highly peculiar chemical compositions in a small fraction of galactic halo stars.”
