They’re not saying it’s aliens, but signal traced to sunlike star sparks SETI interest

They’re not saying it’s aliens, but signal traced to sunlike star sparks SETI interest

SETI researchers are buzzing about a strong spike in radio signals that seemed to come from the direction of a sunlike star in the constellation Hercules, known as HD 164595.

The signal conceivably fits the profile for an intentional transmission from an extraterrestrial source – but it could also be a case of earthly radio interference, or a microlensing event in which the star’s gravitational field focused stray signals coming from much farther away.

In any case, the blip is interesting enough to merit discussion by those who specialize in the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, or SETI – including Centauri Dreams’ Paul Gilster, who brought the case into the public eye this weekend.

Gilster reports that the signal spike was detected more than a year ago, on May 15, 2015, by the RATAN-600 radio telescope in Zelenchukskaya. That facility is in the Russian republic of Karachay-Cherkessia, not far from the Georgian border.

The apparent source of the signal, HD 164595, is interesting for a couple of reasons: It’s a sunlike star, about 95 light-years away from Earth, and it’s already known to have at least one “warm Neptune” planet called HD 164595 b. “There could, of course, be other planets still undetected in this system,” Gilster says.

It seems like we are seeing more and more incidents that can't be easily dismissed by science anymore that would suggest we are close to the answer to the age old question -

Are we alone in the universe.

Personally speaking I don't believe we are alone and only the arrogance of man would assume we are. Either way SETI is once again in the news with another possible signal that could potentially be non natural occurring.

Oooooo!

Certainly interesting enough to warrant a closer look and more listening in that area.

Could be written off.

Or it could be something much more interesting and enormous.

because the likelihood of an artificial radio signal is plausible even...
-the chances of another species evolving in the same manner as us has the same probability metrics as us finding another species who's evolved to the same point we're at technologically.



ill elaborate slightly...

we presume other races would develop in similar fashion as us, or have senses and numskull like we do, or the way we translate things to understand them is how potential ETs would as well, and thus would build or have technology to read and detect the forces as we do.... no respectable scientist would ever make such claim, if evolution happens randomly and would differ each time.

we're not looking for ETs, were looking for ourselves.

we're 1% different than Chimps, and look at our differences, imagine a species 99% different than us, would we even recognize them ro think theyre alive?

science has failed and sensationalized the extra terrestrial idea for so long. so now, any anomaly is a 'potential' of 'something'... just not saying what it is
i smh every time we try to humanize every modicum of interesting findings not from earth. i.e. the 'dyson sphere', why would we think an advanced race wouldnt secede the need to use ungodly amounts of energy, advanced civilizations would use less energy to do more unlike us...
science is now pandering to the masses and telling them what they want to hear.

Things feel as though they are speeding up a bit, Discovery wise. With the experiment that possibly shows life after death, to the star that might have a dyson sphere, To this signal and much more. So much in such a short period of time. Very exciting time to be alive.

Okay, maybe it's the swine flu I'm currently suffering speaking here, but.....

Aliens are real. They've been interfering with human development for millennia. The only real scandal is that they've managed to keep it under wraps for so long.

Where do you think the world's religions came from? Our various Gods are real, they're just more advanced races than us using technology that is beyond even today's level of understanding.

Sheer arrogance is the only thing that suggests we are alone in this universe. Common sense on the other hand dictates we are only one of many sentient lifeforms in an ocean of stars.

Fact is however even if this signal is from another species communication in any meaningful manner is beyond our technological capability given the distances between the stars and the time it takes for signals to travel.

maybe a signal they sent 500 years ago. Maybe like our Voyager.

Maybe...

When I get this sick I start to think about life, death and what happens next.

And I always remember back to the mysterious Medjugorje experience that literally thousands of New Zealand folk, including me experienced back in February 1993.

What we saw and experienced nobody could ever convince me was fake or mass hysteria. The part that puzzles me to this day are the frenzied media reports of UFO sightings OVER THE VERY LOCATION we were at while it was all happening.

The idea that you even need an "Earth-like" planet in the habitable zone to harbor any chance of life is very misleading, imo.

If you have a Neptune- or a Jupiter-like planet in the goldilocks zone, that planet itself might not be habitable, but our own Jupiter has 67 known moons...just sayin'

Possibly.

However even if they managed to encode how to send a return signal, and we decided to do so, it it would still take 500 years for our signal to travel to there location and another 500 years for any response they decided to send. So realistically it would take a 1000 years to communicate. Talk about a long distance conversation.

? What Medjugorje experience was that? I thought that was the name of a small town in Croatia? There was a similar experience in New Zealand? Have you (or anyone) written about it?

Oh, and vitamin C helps with influenza ... take a lot until you get the runs... works like magic.

Oh... and of course we aren't "alone" in this vast "universe"... never have been and likely never will be... though proof would be nifty.

Unless they were smart enough to teach us a way to communicate when we get the rudimentary signal.

The movie Contact keeps coming to mind lol.

Ivan Dragicevic, one of the visionaries visited NZ along with Father Slavko (?) gave a presentation as well as had his daily vision at 6 pm. It was during his vision that the local radio stations went mental with reports of a large object hovering over Auckland Cathedral beaming light down on it. At Marcellin College around 1pm there were strange meteorological phenomena in the sky. There were a thousand odd people there and we all see it.

Either the Catholic Church has a super awesome special effects department, or we are not alone.

I'm going with not alone.
