Are We Receiving Signals From Life on Another World?
As the SETI project continues to search for new life in the universe through radio signals and other technology, a planet that was previously dismissed as a stellar burst is sending mysterious alien signals into space. Scientists familiar with similar signals believed the data that was being sent into space and eventually collected by us was from nearby stars in the alien solar system.
The planet in question is called Gliese 581 and it is only 22 light years away from our solar system and interestingly this planet resides in the fabled 'Goldilocks zone' of a solar system where liquid water can be present due to hospitable day/night temperature cycles.
So we have a strange alien planet, twice the size of Earth, in a Goldilocks zone of it's own solar system, a mere 22 light years away from Earth -- and now scientists say they are receiving bizarre alien signals from this planet? As we home in on actual evidence of E.T. life, it sure seems this is a fantastic place to start. Wouldn't it be wild if we were receiving radio and/or TV-esque signals from an Alien race? The implications of this find cannot be understated.
Per the Daily Mail --
Astronomers believe mysterious signals - previously dismissed as stellar bursts - are coming from an Earth-like planet.
The Gliese 581d planet has conditions that could support life, and is likely to be a rocky world, twice the size of Earth. Signals from the planet were initially discovered in 2010, but last year dismissed as noise from distant stars.
Now, a further study claims that the 2014 research was based on 'inadequate analyses of the data' and that Gliese 581d does exist.
