yeah I hope they really do something with this news . But most of the time your hear nothing about it anymore so will see!

I believe this is as someone has already stated. They get sporadic, not repeatable and non-verifiable signlas all the time, so they could be anything. But they report them when they are gearing up for a fund drive for obvious reasons. I love SETI and think is it cool, but it does have to deal with reality (money) and that means they have to do certain things as a means to an end.

However, I don't think SETI will be successful. I value SETI only as a vehicle to get others interested in this subject. If the universe is as populated as I believe, they would have found tons of verifiable signals by now. Even if only a few percent of galactic civilizations were detectable by SETI (and I'm only talking galactic, not universe) then we should have heard from tons of them by now...but we haven't. That troubles me.

That troubles me to , but what if we are being shielded from all those signals. Maybe they had tons of signals but don't tell us about it, I rather think that could be the case. Why would you stir the pod if you already have made contact and are on the bridge of learning new technologies from it ? so you keep the masses buzzy and ones a decade you say Wow!

I've always been of the view that we are using the wrong technology to listen for signals or communications....

If a civilisation is advanced enough to be flying long distances in space, then it is reasonable to assume that they have developed communications systems that can also travel faster than light, otherwise it would be pointless trying to communicate. If, however, the civilisation is transmitting in radio waves then it is possible that we simply haven't received the signal from them yet - i.e.: it is still en route - and therefore the signal could arrive now, or in 26,000 years time (that's the time it would take a radio signal to travel the length of just our galaxy).

Anyhoo, I think I'm just ranting now...

What does this signal represent?

apod.nasa.gov...

Are they trying to make a connection to the pole shift somehow?
The signal on the bottom has drifted from 185 to 190 similar to the Tampa airport runway compass shift and the GPS signal is shifting the other way from 210 towards 205?

Since the governemtns haven't officialy disclosed that possibility, that p+roject will continue to keep the cover up.

Also, even if the disclose had hapenned, and there were indeed aliens here, why should we stop progress and knowledge ? Aliens being here doesn't mean that we stop evolving.

Occams Razor. The truth is the government doesn't know and this is news to them too.

Not very exciting and a hard pill to swallow for people that need some sort of conspiracy in their lives

But did seti not aim on the civilizations that started to evolve and came to an era that they could have used radio waves in that particular time period they lived in ? so if this civilization lived some billion years ago and used radio waves then they could arrive right? But then again radio waves can easily so distorted by cosmic interference that it breaks up?

Until the secretive World Government that Coordinates and Controls the release of Knowledge of ETs wether or not SETI finds proof of Alien Life will be suppressed, disregarded, and Controlled. Im sure they found hundreds of proof by now but arent allowed to release the information

Thats what I wonder too, If nasa or the governments know that E.T exists then why waste all the money searching for signals. If the government was funding SETI I would have said they do it to to cover up that they already know they exist, but they dont fund it.


SETI started out as project by university types with cobbled equipment. Now it's annalyzed by government funded computers and reports to the gov't. If they didn't fund it it would go back to being makeshift and cobbled and it's always possible they would stumble across something the gov't doesn't want public so by funding it they can control what gets released.

Exactly ^^^ . Have you ever heard of the Majestic 12?

heres the article about seti searching the KOIs & needing funding. shrewdraven.org...



Unfortunately, the Allen Telescope Array may not be able to continue operations beyond mid-April of 2011 unless we receive a much larger infusion of funding.


and on the KOIs


The SETI Institute is directly involved with the Kepler project and as such was able to get a list of the 54 KOIs appearing in habitable zone orbits earlier than the general public, and we have been doing regular observations of 50 stars for the last few weeks. From the summary of results: out of 126,530 potential signals detected, those were whittled down quickly to 5 pulsed candidates, which were then further refined down to 2. Narrow band, pulsing emissions are surmised to be a hallmark of intelligent life and are not produced by natural phenomena, as pulsars produce wide band emissions. Repeated observations of those 2 stars did not show a repeat of the signals, leaving us with a tantalizing possible detection that is more likely to have been some Earth-local radio interference (either from the ground or satellites orbiting the Earth).


126,530 possible signals , shows how much noise they have to sift through.

Its not really made clear if this is a recent detection, or when it was made. Its appearing in 'picture of the day' feature merely suggests that it might be recent. It could also be stock 'filler', for use when no other interesting pictures are immediately available, and could be years old. Some of the language seems to indicate that some fair amount of time may have passed since the detection. Many 'one shot' detections, as this is supposed to have been, have been made; never definitely identified as extraterrestrial intelligence, or interference from some Earthly source. Such signals are not heard for a long enough time to pin them down. Its a bit odd the way they decline to state which SETI project actually detected the signal. The ad hoc speculation about what might have caused the signal sounds rather improbable. Ross

I think the satellite might have something to do with the new emergency broadcasting system. I heard Obama wants to be able to send out messages to everyone during an emergency.(even to our mobile devices.)

Im interested to hear the noise, anywhere I would be able to listen to an audio version of the signal?

Seriously, can there be one discussion without the mention of a dang pole shift. I wasn't going to comment but jeez.

I like the thread op.

The top people already know openly we deal with extra terrestrial life and have been for a long time. Some guy from Nasa made a statement saying he believes in extra terrestrial life. Numerous commercials during the super bowl pertaining to aliens. [ Movie trailers and even a few ads. ] So many videos now increasing in quality and technology. The discovery of 500 other earth like planets orbiting similar stars.

They're finally starting to spoon feed us this after a long time. I don't want to jynx it, but it might be the beginning of disclosure? Just hope they don't pull some give up your guns so the aliens don't feel threatened nonsense.

I'm starting to feel that if an official organization says something, it's complete bs. They never tell us the truth. I'm tired of the hyped up news conferences just to say, "it's a bacteria!" I mean, sure that is exciting because it redefines the requirements for "life", but they're just doing it to troll us.

I say enough is enough! Forget SETI, forget NASA, stop waiting for the Obama State of the Union DISCLOSURE... we know they're here! Astronauts have admitted it. What more do we really want? If we stop begging at their feet, maybe they'll get the hint and stop dropping scraps.


Good thread, OP. I hope you'll excuse my rant.

They need to see if they can find this signal again becaue if they can't find it then it will be dealt with the same way as the wow signal

I was living in Nor Cal a few years ago. I took the family for a drive out to see the SETI grounds and satellite arrays.

They are located on the back side of Mt.Shasta. I was completely unmoved by their operation. I have to tell you, I found it to be overgrown with weeds and kind of a joke.

If you are looking for SETI to locate ET.....I hope you are very young
