In other news , Bad news for KIC 8462852

A planet full of self centered war faring religious lunatics discovers KIC 8462852 and hopes to make contact in the future.

Best to ignore the bald monkeys of planet earth.

Activate the cloaking device !

The point is to receive an intelligent signal, it doesn't need to be decrypted.

Not if other equal civilizations weren't listening.

I find the entire subject fascinating. It has occurred to me that an advanced alien civilization might require subordinate civilizations below them to be aware of their existence before any contact is initiated. It would make sense if sentient life in our galaxy thinks along common lines but this is not a given. Here's to hoping it's what we think it is and they're a peaceful bunch. My best,

Sending out radio signals to that star is like the ancient native Americans sending out smoke signals to modern day New York ...

It's all happening very fast! We live in exciting times people!

Keeping on top of this. Thanks for posting.

I do wonder if they are easing us (or the rest of "them" that are scared) for disclosure.

We would still receive the signal clearly wont we.

In GreWi interview astronomer corrects the statements of the Universe Today article now and notes that SETI had yet to receive any signals from KIC 8,462,852

I know it hasn't been very long since the OP posted, but has there been any update on anything yet?

Oh my....

How likely is it that you would take that "signal"
as an attempt of communication....

Nothing new since the start of this thread

The goal to determine our "company" in the universe is edging ever closer. Are we ready? I believe humanity as a whole is educated enough in this topic.

Exciting times, great find.


I'm glad someone else thought of this same quote.

My earlier post: www.abovetopsecret.com...

The claim that any signal at all has been received/found was refuted. Any data collected so far only has to do with the light curve and attempting to ascertain whether debris or another explanation may account for the dimming.

This does not mean one might not be found in the future, or that they have determined whether said debris hypothesis is sufficient to account for the dimming yet either, to be clear.

If that hypothesis gets ruled in, then that's essentially all she wrote. Even if it gets ruled out though, then they still have to brainstorm and see if they can hypothesize anything else that might account for it... which could take years potentially. (At one time we didn't know what Pulsars were, and thought they were indicative of intelligent signals potentially.)

This may take a while, and not provide the immediate satiation most people seem to want from this important and exciting issue.

Peace.

That's unfortunate. Well, I'm still hoping we find a civilized race out of it. Doubtful, but hoping

Has anyone considered that the dyson panels could have been put in place by a prior generation that died in war or by comet/meteor strike? You really can't assume that evidence of advanced technology indicates that the creators still exist.

Additionally, who is to say that radio communication is not one of the best forms of communication? Sure, we hypothesize that more advanced methods could exist, but that doesn't mean they do or that an alien species ever utilized them.

And perhaps a dying civilization left a beacon that they wanted to be detected.

Any of those things is as likely as it is that an advanced civilization discovered communication means that we haven't.

Imho, it's neither fortunate nor unfortunate... yet. Nothing has really changed. We're still where we were when KIC 8462852 was first reported as being of interest to SETI and others. Even in the total absence of any intelligent-seeming signals, the dimming is still interesting and exciting until/unless explained away, which it hasn't been yet.

It just feels like a let down because people hastily and erroneously reported this "signal" being detected, but in actuality nothing has changed from what we already knew... yet.
So don't be pessimistic quite yet. Skeptical, yes, but there's still hope.

Peace.

Totally on board with how you laid that out. That being said, my gut feeling here is that once they lay out the comet cloud theory in terms of what it actually would have to look like in order to fit the data, they will find it to be untenable. Just how wide and massive would the cloud have to be? Why would this system have that much rocky/ice material; and even if that were possible, why would all of that material be in the same place at the same time?

There probably will be further natural theories that we will stumble upon to explain this. But I highly doubt the current explanation will pan out... Upon hearing that the comet cloud was the best fit solution, it dawned on me that we are very limited in our understanding of all the possibilities out there. I lean far toward a naturally occurring explanation, but I don't see how we'll solve this one any time soon.

That could very well be the case. Just because we can't conceive of a natural cause, doesn't mean there isn't one. (As was the case before we understood pulsars for instance.) I too expect, most likely, to discover a natural explanation. However, if we do rule out everything we can think of, while it doesn't mean it has to be artificial in nature, it certainly will be a tantalizing possibility and worth exploring further... if we can.

Peace.
