Scientists have heard hugely unusual messages from deep in space that they think are coming from aliens.

A new analysis of strange modulations in a tiny set of stars appears to indicate that it could be coming from extraterrestrial intelligence that is looking to alert us to their existence.

The new study reports the finding of specific modulations in just 234 out of the 2.5 million stars that have been observed during a survey of the sky. The work found that a tiny fraction of them seemed to be behaving strangely.

And there appears to be no obvious explanation for what is going on, leaving the scientists behind the paper to conclude that the messages are coming from aliens.

“We find that the detected signals have exactly the shape of an [extraterrestrial intelligence] signal predicted in the previous publication and are therefore in agreement with this hypothesis,” write EF Borra and E Trottier in a new paper. “The fact that they are only found in a very small fraction of stars within a narrow spectral range centered near the spectral type of the sun is also in agreement with the ETI hypothesis,” the two scientists from Laval University in Quebec write.

The research has been accepted for publication in the journal Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, under the title ‘Signals probably from Extraterrestrial Intelligence’.

But they make clear that further work will need to be done to confirm or deny that hypothesis. That will need to be done by watching for the same signals on different equipment so that all other explanations can be discarded.

Breakthrough Listen – an initiative set up this year to look for alien life and supported by people including Stephen Hawking and Mark Zuckerberg – said that the message was promising. But they said that further work will have to be done before they can be “unequivocally attributed” to aliens.

“The one in 10,000 objects with unusual spectra seen by Borra and Trottier are certainly worthy of additional study,” the team said in a statement. “However, extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.

“probably”

based on what evidence exactly?

is this a guess? 🙂

oh..its a hypothesis..

errmm..yeah..you do that..

  1. Any minute signals from the jumbo jet in the ocean?

  2. How many millions of years old are these signals? If their hypothesis is correct, those that made them may be long extinct or, conversely, so advanced that we’re of no interest to them.
    And I’ve never understood why we seem to be so bent on telling the universe we’re here in the first place. If ET intelligence exists, we know nothing about them, and if they’re capable of interstellar travel, they may well see us in the same way we see an infestation of hornets under the eaves of our house…something annoying that needs to be eliminated before it becomes a real problem.
    Wouldn’t it be more intelligent to remain as unnoticeable as possible until we know what we’re dealing with out there? Why can’t supposedly “smart” people grasp this simple concept of survival?

    • what if such talks are a way to prepare us, gradually, bit by bit, for ETs that are already here?…

  3. It could be signals from a distant TV soap

    God Challenges Job
    …6″On what were its bases sunk? Or who laid its cornerstone, 7When the morning stars sang together And all the sons of God shouted for joy? 8″Or who enclosed the sea with doors When, bursting forth, it went out from the womb;…
