  • Major observatory receives signal from nearby star - alien technology NOT ruled out

Astronomers at the University of Puerto Rico detected the freakish radio signals in May.

"We realised 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 professor Abel Mendez, planetary astrobiologist and director of the Planetary Habitability Laboratory at the University of Puerto Rico in a blog post. This finding has been revealed to SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) - an alien-hunting authority.

A "peculiar" signal has been detected from a star just 11 light years away from Earth - with odd "almost periodic" bursts of radio waves.

The signals were detected by researchers from the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico who are studying red dwarf stars. He also explained that there is also a possibility that alien beings are the reason behind the origination of these signals.

"The field of view of (Arecibo) is wide enough, so there is the possibility that the signals were caused not by the star but another object in the line of sight", Mendez said. "Some communication satellites transmit in the frequencies we observed", he said according to Express.

"Therefore, we have a mystery here and the three main explanations are as good as any at this moment", the professor said. Success will be to find the signal again' at the star's location but not in surrounding directions.

Seth Shostak, senior astronomer at the SETI Institute, said that they are "well aware of the signals" and hope to use California's powerful Allen Telescope Array to "check them out". "We are not sure if we can get to the bottom of this mystery from just the next observations if that was a rare event", Mendez concluded.
