Scientists say radio signals from deep space could be aliens

Scientists say radio signals from deep space could be aliens
Scientists may have found proof that E.T. really is phoning home — in the form of powerful radio signals, which have been detected repeatedly in the same exact location in space.

Astronomy experts with the Green Bank Telescope in West Virginia and the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico have discovered six new Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs) emitting from a region far beyond our Milky Way galaxy, according to a recent report in the Astrophysical Journal.

The discovery — made in the direction of the Auriga constellation — is significant considering the fact that at least 17 FRBs have now been detected in this area. It is also the only known instance in which these signals have been found twice in the same location in space.

That WOULD be announced on an evening when I'm watching the Star Trek movies 3 & 4. Last night, 'V'ger' came calling & the whale probe is about to make its presence known.

Perhaps that sector has had and may continue to contain sentient life forms with technologies similar to ours - at least at that level when the transmissions originated.

Bloody unlikely. For that amount of energy we're talking a stellar phenomenon that happened to only be detectable because we were looking right at it with the right instrument.

Doubt humanity had evolved when these signals started. Wonder if ET is still around given present progress of humanity.
