It’s another not really close experience.
A group of alien-hunting researchers is investigating a radio “signal” from Earth’s nearest neighboring star — drawing correlations with the puzzling “Wow!” sign of 1977, as per a report Friday.
Astronomers from the Breakthrough Listen Project — a $100 million mission to discover life in space with radio telescopes — got a wave emanation that they accept came from the Proxima Centauri star, which is 4.2 light-years away, the Guardian detailed.
The specialists, who recognized the shaft in Australia in April, said it merits testing in light of the fact that the recurrence was predictable with the development of a planet.
“It is the first serious candidate since the ‘Wow! signal,'” they bunch told the source.
In 1977, space expert Jerry Ehman found radio waves that he called the “Wow!” signal while utilizing Ohio State’s “Big Ear” telescope in Delaware. The sign — which was multiple times more grounded than common background radiation — couldn’t have come from Earth, researchers said at that point.
Astronomers have since theorized that the waves came from passing comets, not alien life.
Researchers with the Breakthrough Listen Project are getting ready to investigate the most recent sign, named BLC1, in an research paper.
