Ah...

It seems that you are under a misapprehension.

Although it might seem contrary to ones progression of thought, people do not find it easier to accept a half formed and poorly explained concept, just because one has typed it using upper case letters exclusively. Taking the time to provide a detailed explanation of your thinking, and the route by which you have arrived at your conclusions however, might yield a more useful result!

Kudos for having a go at it though!

Finally-Tesla's signals have been replied to.

He would be proud.

I never bought the idea that he was picking up a pulsar,as many now say..
Tesla thought he was recieving an alien communication.

Maybe he was.

The fast radio bursts are quick, bright flashes of radio waves that last only milliseconds, but still emit as much energy as the sun in an entire day.


Hmm.. So with the right antenna my energy problem is solved ??

So it took 5.5 billion years for Tesla's signal to arrive there, and another 5.5 billion years for the reply to come back to Earth?

Makes perfect sense, what else could it be but a reply to Tesla? He sent that about 11 billion years ago, right?

And I was just wondering when another such signal would be picked up. Was just searching through WOW signal threads lately.

But let`s not get hasty now. It could be a rational explanation behind it. Will definitely keep an eye on this thread. S+F

The radio signals originated up to 5.5 billion light-years away, from outside our Milky Way Galaxy and that they were caught by astronomers possibly up to a decade after they happened.


If astronomers caught the signals ten years after they were generated then the source is only ten light years away, not 5.5 billion. And how could they possibly know where the source is? They couldn't have triangulated it as you need at least two observation points very far apart from each other to do that accurately with these distances.

Hehe,well
Not quite what I meant,but a very funny response from you all the same.

Could this be ET the signal we have all been waiting for. I love it when the scientists sometimes dont have an answer just makes the mystery all the more wonderous.





An unknown radio signal, which may have come from a black hole, colliding neutron stars (or – for those who ‘believe’ – alien life), has been picked up by astronomers live for the first time ever. Its origins remain mysterious.

The fast radio bursts are quick, bright flashes of radio waves that last only milliseconds, but still emit as much energy as the sun in an entire day. This is the first time that these radio waves have been spotted live. The first burst was picked up in 2007 by sifting through old data at the Parkes Radio Telescope in Eastern Australia. Only seven others have been seen since then.

This time, the mysterious waves were picked with the use of 12 telescopes in Australia, Chile, Germany, Hawaii, India, California and the Canary Islands.

Sydney Morning Herald: Australian scientist first to catch mysterious alien radio signals


Fast radio bursts are not new (they have been widely known about since 2010) nor are they artificial. They are wide band like the radio noise that comes from the Sun, Jupiter, Pulsars, and other natural objects. If they were narrowband signals like the ones we broadcast or the famous "Wow!" signal then there would be a good case for them being artificial but they are not.

This is just another case of the media jumping the gun, characterizing something natural as ET when most everyone involved in the study of the fast radio bursts agrees they have a natural source, just an unknown one.

These bursts of noise are similar to the kind first heard in the 1960s which for a brief time were called "LGM" (for "little green men"). That designation did not last long before they became known as pulsars.

If you're looking for contact, this ain't it unless you believe the static you hear in between radio stations is ET calling too.

And you should know, science lives to solve mysteries like this. If there were no mysteries there would be no need for science.

By the way, information science people working with SETI have looked into these fast radio bursts as an exercise in the type of analysis that would be done if we really did begin to receive artificial extraterrestrial signals.

Using information theory they have concluded that these fast radio bursts contain no information. In other words, they're random noise.

There are many methods for determining distance in space. Only one (parallax) relies on triangulation.

Could it be a pulsar? I know they rotate very fast but I dont they spin in milliseconds. Maybe some of the space experts on here can shed some light.


Actually they can pulse with a lot faster frequency than a millisecond.

I do not think this is likely to originate from an alien civilization, unless that civilization was much more advanced technologically than we are at present. The energy we are talking about here is enormous. The magnetic field required to polarize these bursts is also enormous. We could not produce something of this nature, nor will we likely be able to in the near future. It is much, much more plausible that these waves have originated from a massive stellar body or phenomenon of some sort. This is nothing like picking up a radio or television signal from an alien planet or anything like that.

I wondered about that wording myself.

I would interpret that statement to mean an event that occurred at a distance up to 5.5 billion light-years distant with an event-duration of up to a decade in length. I imagine that an immense energy release of that magnitude could unfold over an extended period of time.

Seriously. I said this in another thread to you. Stop with the caps lock, and start with the coherent thoughts. Full sentences and paragraphs. That alone will allow you to covey your message better than any caps rant. Believe me, if you continue, people will continue to ignore the content of your message.

There is a reason literature is not written in caps.

Well, sure, but the energy density is so low at this distance, you'd need an antenna the size of the Milky Way. Other than that, no problem.

You didn't read all of the article did you?

Consider what a great waste of energy that would be if it was an alien signal - but if it was a very advanced race, that kind of energy could be nothing - just one star for one day, give or take.

Pulsars are pretty stable as far as I understood, but if it was a pulsar you would have thought they could find its location and detect it on a regular basis.

Maybe it is worm holes opening and closing - natural or otherwise, which I believe would generate massive amounts of radiation and radio waves.

Who knows eh?
