As much as I'd love it to be other life out there, it truly probably is just something powerful like a magnetar. 500 million light-years is a long damn ways away, if anything living ever did send the signals, they're long gone by now/long evolved. Whoever we'd meet wouldn't be remotely the same as who first said "YO!" across the vastness.


500 Million Light years is also a very damn long time ago..

If it were, they would be long gone by now and on top of that, we could never hope to ever, have the technology to travel out that far to find out.

But there is no way to determine the distance to the source


What if we had a radio telescope on Mars or the moon. Could we determine the distance then?

That is one of the few lunar science projects I could get behind because it would be relatively easy and "cheap" to accomplish with no need to send people there to do it. Select a nice parabolic crater on the farside and then send some robots in there to weave a metallic spider web that would create a nice, huge radio telescope dish hidden away from most of the radio noise on Earth. I bet we'd pick up some interesting signals with it.

Beamforming is directional vs omnidirectional where it just sends out in all directions.
You can use beamforming on the transmitter and the receiver to get tight signals.

"First Contact?"
No.
First Contact was made thousands of years ago.

Not only this but the shear amount of energy required to be spent sending this signal would be something on the order only able to be obtained by civilizations on par with, let's say The Ancestors from Stargate.

Notice I referenced a fictional civilization. That's because as powerful as many peons may think we are....were not.

Not sure why the title says "Clockwork" then in the body of the article it states that sometimes multiple.....sometimes none.

If it is sometimes this or that and they cant predict it then clockwork isn't the right word for it.

I like that response. Something along the lines I was thinking, but felt it would be too out there and complicated for others to contemplate and accept it’s as true a possibility as anything else. Maybe more. a reply to: vethumanbeing

Can you provide a little more detail?

I know not of what you speak...

Scientists cannot cure the common cold but I am supposed to believe they are listening to something 500 million light years away? Ha! Cool when you read it but, really?

It's the mother ship pinging us from behind Titan...

2 completely different fields of practice. Can't even compare the 2 as far as technological advancements lol

Of course he can't. It's nonsense.

Still looking for that 3.14 signal.

Just be quiet and eat your pie, sean.

our first intentional broadcast was in 1974 so these broadcasts could likely place their technology 80 or so years ahead of us, if it is a civilization responsible for these broadcasts anyway.

You can use beamforming on the transmitter and the receiver to get tight signals.

Not like a laser, though. You can kind of block a signal like the way the moon blocks our signals when it gets in the way. But radio in general tends to spread like water or unfocused light.

Either way, it's a lot easier to tell where it's coming from than where it's "directed."

Newz: What caused scientists in 1890s to begin attempting to contact extraterrestrials??


VHB:They were in search of an answer to human origins. They were looking for God (separation anxiety causal).


Riffrafter: Aren't we all?[sigh]

Yes. That is point. Separation from our Origin results in an emotion that can be synthesized/sold (very valuable). The next one closest to it is the emotion a Mother produces protecting its child. We are resources of renewable energy for those that planned manipulated and ultimately created us. Not Origin but what one would call Demi-Gods.

Downloading porn in 95 was more tantalizing than anything these nastards can come up with. "Maybe the nipples will load soon, maybe there are no nipples? Do all women have nipples? Don't think mom does"
