As always im sitting here praying it may be some type of ET probe which sends out signals.

Ahh i can dream!

wow this is amazing.
Completely mind boggling.

And here i was thinking the exact same thing.

But hey you never know, billions of planets out there, at least 1 must have intelligent enough life on it to achieve this.

Hell if intelligent life can happen here it can happen somewhere else as well.

Great find, Now...

The signal started when the nearby explosion took place now it is constant and traveling away from said explosion at great speed and is broadcasting it's position.


Same thing I was noticing.

Coincidence?

Also, I believe the discovery indicates that the object emitting the radio waves is travelling 4x speed of light. Not the radio waves themselves. Is that correct? In that case, if we assume the radio waves traveled at or near lightspeed, it took approximately 12M years to reach us.

Wouldn't it be ironic and oh, so interesting if this discovery is somehow our long lost past finally catching up with us visibly? Just a sci-fi imagination at work here

Yehp your right, we also dont know what crazy ways they may try and communicate with others, this may be one of many probes or even ships flying around nearby galaxies sending out signals, and now its our turn to receive them.



Or it could be some boring natural thing, like a planet farting

Well if it's not ET then we are forced to re-exam our knowledge. Let's start by going from the Macro to the Micro. What has been the longest surviving quark on record thus far? Time is relevant?

I don't tweet, but maybe someone who does can tweet this guy

@RobertMasseyRAS

he is at the conference discussing it and tweeting about it right now!

I think that both the poster who said something can travel faster than light due to relative speeds, and the one who said that something can travel faster that light, but just not "accelerate" faster are both incorrect. In the first case, C is constant regardless of relative motion, and in the second case, C is the speed limit (not the accelaration limit). No?

it's clearly a fleet of V motherships heading to earth to fight the firth column.


but seriously, it's a very interesting discovery. let's hope they remain honest about the discoveries, whatever it may be.

very strange you say those coords as i was watching a you tube video about the supposed Nibiru and the coords on the video of what they were supposedly tracking back then was Ra 7h07m27.09s dec 20401398 could this mean it has moved like we all thought i'm not a mad astro person but thought this may relate to this let me know if i'm wrong by all means

Nice find. Sounds crazy.

Wouldn't something light years away be impossible for us to reach anyways though? It's moving fast but towards us or what?

Can't this be one of those things we'll never understand?


Technically we are receiving an old signal if it's light years away I think? Or does that only correspond to light and not radio frequencies? I really don't know all this but I would love to hear the signal audibly for sure!!

This thread brought to mind another from yesterday that was about science being a lie. How ironic this doesn't quite fit the previous understanding.

Excelent thread and very informative friend S&F for such great efforts!

Good read...


Its amazing to me that some people are still so closed minded when it come to life from another body than Earth. We are here right?

I was going to make a point about that! Whatever this signal is from, it is 12 Million years old. Not exactly breaking news


Very interesting though! I don't fully understand what this signal is like, but have they discovered any sort of repeating pattern to it? Anything to suggest it's artificial?

I guess we'll find out more info after the dudes done his speech!

Einstein's theory didn't say objects couldn't travel faster than the speed of light, it only stated that objects couldn't accelerate faster than light. It may seem like symantecs, but if something is already travelling at c or faster, it doesn't need to accelerate.


Otto Struve, Russian-American astronomer who headed the first American search for intelligent life via radio telescope was reported to have made a very sage and strikingly humble statement for a scientist: "I believe that Science has reached the point where it is necessary to take into account the actions of intelligent beings, in addition to the classical laws of physics.

Side-stepping the principles of physics is a natural act of intelligence.

Airplanes are a way of side-stepping gravity. UFOs are powered by side-stepping mass (thus, their SOL or near SOL capability).

Yes however the object is said to be moving at 4 times the speed of light. The original location was 12 million light years away but the object is now moving faster than light. So how does that play into the time-line.?

Kinda like it was thinking "Hmmm this explosion is bound to grab someone or some things attention so the perfect time to broadcast to peak attention is during or right after this explosion"

I would just love to find out in a few days that some super geek decodes this signal into some kind of message from a intelligent source!

(keeps dreaming)

Some where on Earth, Dr. Paul La Violette is jumping up and down screaming that he was right all along...Anyone interested in alternative theories for quasars and there not so random positions relative to Earth might want to Google this dude!!!

I think you are correct relitivly speaking (pun intended)...

No matter how fast matter travels it can never reach or travel faster then C.


E=γmc2 where γ=1/(√ 1-v2/c2)

If the equation looks confusing, here’s a summary: The faster an object moves, an exponentially larger amount of energy is needed to speed it up, which is why travelling at light speed requires an infinite—and impossible—amount of energy.

So unless you’re a photon, there’s a fat chance you’ll be matching the universe’s speed record any time soon.


source: - Can Matter Travel at Light Speed?

I can't see how matter can be at 4 x light speed without having gone through acceleration.

Whats more is there is some evidence to suggest that as matter approaches light speed it actually starts to loose its mass by conversion to energy. in effect any matter getting close would transmute (gatchaman lol).

Peace out,

Korg.

I thought I remembered that Hawking radiation could escape blackhole, if that is true then they go faster then the speed of light, right?
