Would SETI and NASA have detected alien signal on Ganymede? "We were not talking to you":lol:

The supposed fact have caused an international meeting, with surprising ending.

Will astronomers from North American Space Agency (NASA) and the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence [Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, SETI] actually found an artificial signal of one of Jupiter's largest moons, Ganymede, during the 1980s? According to some researchers, the answer is yes.

This scenario seems to have occurred. According to the author Rupert Matthews - with almost two hundred books and an expert on historical themes or military - the information was transmitted to him as real, a NASA astronomer who was working in close collaboration with SETI.

While it may seem for some, very absurd, it is worth recalling that it was only in recent decades that experts confirmed the strong evidence of liquid oceans beneath Europa, Ganymede and Callisto, the three largest moons of Jupiter. And as everyone knows, water is the element that must be present for life to develop, so while it looks as unlikely, not impossible.

This signal seems to have been detected, according to the author and his sources, only for a short period of time, not repeating itself since then, we may say that these aliens were just visiting the site and would not be permanent residents of that moon.

As for the likely fact, that's what Matthews reports in his book Alien Encounters: True Life Stories of Aliens, UFOs and Other Extra-Terrestrial Phenomena [Alien Encounters: Real Life Stories of Aliens, UFOs and Other Phenomena Extraterrestrials, Arcturus Foulsham, 2008 ].

Professionals from NASA and SETI captured on the radio, as the stories of Matthews, a clue that would contain a message in the mid 80s. The signal was coming from Ganymede, Jupiter's moon, and definitely artificial in nature.

It was implemented through several computers and no sense deciphered as to the meaning of it. Then-President Ronald Reagan, was notified and an international conference set up to determine how to make an attempt to contact the intelligence he was sending the message.

Eventually, they decided to send a signal to the exact place of origin in Morse code, which was considered to be easier to decode an alien civilization. It was then transmitted. "We received the signal, but do not understand. Please resend using this language and broadcasting code."

Immediately after referral, the mysterious sign of Ganymede ceased transmission. Everyone thought they would receive the answer in Morse code in a short period of time.

Work by Rupert Matthews, but with interesting content, day after day and week after no signal, the authorities began to lose hope of actually receiving it. Finally, after more than a month, a signal was detected, which was the original source of Ganymede on radio and, incredibly, was in Morse code.

Eagerly, as the author, NASA scientists which would be translated into direct contact with a non-terrestrial intelligence. And she said: "We were not talking to you."

So this would be our first direct contact with an extraterrestrial civilization? If so found, it can be seen in a positive or negative way. Have they contacted us saying they were not talking to us would indicate that we are not substantial or developed enough for them. However, they also indicate that there are several companies in our interplanetary galactic neighborhood.


I dont know if this is true. Nor do I know the author nor his credibility. But if that happened, it was the funniest response to a program that searches for radio signals from aliens could receive.

Hey "We were not talking to you."

If you look at earth from a distance it looks like a marble at night we glow with an intricate network of light.
This makes us clearly stand out as having life.
Electricity is clearly visible from space.
IMO Ganymede shows a few signs of electricity glow... I might be wrong. heh

Ganymede was homosexual in mythology.
Maybe they aint talking to us cos we aint gay enough? haha. We are quite gay as planet aren't we? jeez.
why dont they wanna chat? Planet Earth weve been snubbed!!!!

good video on ganymede.

Nice post

From my understanding, in the event that SETI received a message (I'm talking about a real message-like, not signal, not Morce code, not those type of things) from outer space...they are required to seal everything up and report to the authority and see if they are authorized to release or annouce it to the world. This is to ensure that mass panic and global chaos will not happen.

(putting on a tin-foil hat)
For all I know, they (SETI officers) could have a coffe break with Pleadian or Andromean right now.

Reminds me of a spoof on the movie Contact. I haven't yet checked out the source, but I had to say that first.

Good read, and funny ending.

the source you provided doesn't give any names or citations for reference. It read more like a joke.

The source seems to be a book.

I dont know the author:

Rupert Matthews reports in his book Alien Encounters: True Stories of Aliens, UFO’s and other E.T. Phenomenon which was published in 2008

Maybe its a joke. I like the end. Its really funny.

The real source is a book. I do not have, nor read it. Even reading, dont know how credible is the author who wrote it. But the story is funny and deserves to stay online for all to read. At least that's what I think.

Maybe it is because they are watching us that they dont want talk to us

One thing I have never uses radio as a form of transmitting communication, we know that radio signals are present in space from pulsars and so on...BUT, radio is limited to slightly slower than the speed of light, so why would an advanced civilisation (if one exists) who is capable of moving between the stars use it? If they have clocked FTL travel, or whatever means, then surely they would have invented a communication system far more efficient than radio? otherwise communicating with home would take decades!

I dont know. Maybe because is cheap? Maybe because some civilizations starts comunication with radio, and then evolve to more sophisticated things. Who knows? SETI always hoped to receive a radio signal. Michio kaku says its a wrong way to try comunicate with another civilization.

The story is funny, just like that.

Wow! You're a terrible poster!

What really put me off the article, was the writers faith that Ganymede was "definitely" artificial. If s/he can be so subjective in simply reporting a story, then I'm not going to put much faith in what s/he is reporting.

Thanks though. Interesting read and I too love the thought of receiving such a reply!

It's referring to the signal being artificial.
