This could very well be the source of what the UPR astronomers detected at Aricebo. (Image: nasas Goddard Space Flight Center/S. Astronomers at the Arecibo Observatory have picked up some strange signals coming from Ross 128, a red dwarf star located 11 allergy light-years from Earth.
Naturally, the inability of scientists to immediately explain the anomalous signals has led to rampant speculation that aliens must somehow be involved.
Indeed, its pretty amazing what happens these days when astronomers admit to finding something they cant quite understand.
You get headlines ranging from.
Scientists Detect Peculiar Signals From Nearby Star (DW news) to, aliens Could Be Behind Peculiar Radio Signals From Nearby Star (Daily Caller and so on ad nauseum. The whole thing brings the recent alien megastructure fiasco to mind.
Apparently, this is what happens now when scientists discover new shit in space that they cant explain. The Many, Many Times Astronomers Mistook Mundane Phenomena for Aliens. The science world is all in a tizzy this week about the supposed discovery of an alien.
Read more, this latest excitement was sparked by astronomers with the University of Puerto Ricos. Planetary Habitability Laboratory, who described the unusual radio signals in a recent blog post. Two weeks after our observations, we realized that there were some very peculiar signals in the 10-minute dynamic spectrum that we obtained from Ross 128 (GJ 447 observed May 12, wrote astronomer Abel Mendez.
Image: PHL, mendez says he doesnt know the origin of these strange signals, which are relatively strong and quasi-periodic in nature, but he says there are three likely explanations. The signals could be produced by solar flares on Ross 128, they could be produced by some other object in the area being scanned, or these signals could be coming from one of our satellites in a high orbit.
