WOW Signal: Was It Aliens Or Just a Comet?

     There’s no such thing as a “close call” in SETI – either the radio telescope has picked up an alien signal, or it hasn’t. “Close” doesn’t exist in this one-bit experiment, any more than it does in pregnancy. By Seth Shostakwww.seti.org6-13-17 […] … At close to midnight on […]

Alien Argument for ‘WOW’ Signal Continues …

     An astronomer thinks he’s pinpointed the source of a mysterious radio signal from space: a passing comet that nobody knew about. But his colleagues said they’re still skeptical of the explanation, noting that comets don’t emit radio waves in the right way. By Jesse Emspak Space.com6-13-17 […] Yet […]

Astronomers Capture Hundreds of Alien Signals From Space

Mysterious signals from 234 stars have been recorded by astronomers who believe that it could indicate the presence of extraterrestrial intelligence. Astronomers Ermanno Borra and Eric Trottier from Laval University in Canada analyzed 2.5 million stars from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey project. In their resulting study published in Solar […]

Strong Alien signal coming from nearby sunlike star sets SETI on alarm

SETI researchers are buzzing about a strong spike in radio signals that seemed to come from the direction of a sunlike star in the constellation Hercules, known as HD 164595. The signal conceivably fits the profile for an intentional transmission from an extraterrestrial source – but it could also be […]

Mysterious ‘Wow’ Signal Not From Aliens, Argues Astronomer

By Devin Coldeweywww.nbcnews.com1-11-16       A powerful radio signal received from space in 1977 and never explained may have been the result of a then-unknown comet, not extraterrestrials, an astronomer proposes in a new paper. The “Wow! signal” is named after what astronomer Jerry Ehman wrote (“Wow!”) next to […]
