NASA discovery of possible alien origin
A team of astronomers working on Stephen Hawking‘s project to prove if aliens are real or not have come across strange signals detected from a distant galaxy. The team are under discussion whether the signals originated from a UFO, and begs the question “are aliens real?”
The project, called the Breakthrough Listen project (BL), cost a staggering £77m and recently received a total of 15 fast radio bursts (FRB’s) coming from a mysterious origin. The speculation around the signals have them debating if they have come from a neutron star, a black hole, or are of alien origin.
Since the BL was set up in January 2016 by Professor Hawking and Yuri Milner, a Russian billionaire, the team have come across a total of 24 similar signals.
Andrew Siemion, director of the BL, told the Guardian: “Whether or not fast radio bursts turn out to be signatures of extraterrestrial technology, Breakthrough Listen is helping to push the frontiers of a new and rapidly growing area of our understanding of the universe around us.”
Are aliens real
The strange and possible alien signals of unknown origin were first discovered in the early hours of August 26th. The team was using the Green Bank Telescope located in West Virginia when they came across the FBR’s.
These mysterious and quick signals all originated from the same unknown location in a distant galaxy. However, there is something very odd about them. The signals seem to come in an orderly form, giving the impression that they are intentional, and not a freak cause of some unknown natural event. This strongly indicates the possibility of an alien life form sending the radio waves. However, nothing can be ruled out at this point.
The newly discovered bursts will allow scientists to see more into the gigantic galaxy than ever before. Whether they are intentional or not, scientists and astronomers can still learn a great deal about what is going on within our own galaxy.
So, could these most recent signals be proof to are aliens real? Everyone has their own view and opinion on matters like this, and a few even took to social media to express their concerns.
Some are not convinced. Nadia Drake, a writer for the National Geographic claims this alien news is lazy. Taking to her Twitter account, she has stated that putting the potential of aliens as the solution to this mystery is lazy, and arguably not even scicomm.
However, Emily Calandrelli, the hostess of Xploration Outer Space, disagreed with this statement and says that the BL project has to acknowledge the possibility that anything they discover in space could be originated from aliens.
Regardless, it is fascinating to receive FRB’s, even if they may not have an alien origin.
The point of reporting alien news is to ask the question, “are aliens real?” Fingers crossed we will be able to understand more about how our universe works. As well as the role we have to play in it for the foreseeable future.
