Stephen Hawking study on Alien Life detects radio signal from dwarf planet.

Our inquisitiveness of the alien world has increased over the years and discoveries in the realm of space are almost proving them as a close reality. In May 2017, in Puerto Rico, the Arecibo radio telescope, detected some strange radio signals coming from the vicinity of the red dwarf star. Now mysterious signals have been detected in a distant galaxy by astronomers. In the recent experiment, scientists from University of California, Berkeley perused the galaxy at a higher frequency than what was used to scan the original burst. The Green Bank Telescope was used in West Virginia by the science team of the Breakthrough Listen Project; 15 new radio bursts were detected on 26 August and communicated via an Astronomer’s Telegram.

Stephen Hawking’s project, with a mission on unveiling alien life has sparked debates on whether the latest recorded signals could be those coming from UFOs. A stellar discovery in locating signs of intelligent life present in the universe, these 15 brief, yet powerful radio frequencies that have been recorded are said to emanate from an unknown

The resurgence of these radio pulses force speculation that these vibrations came from the neutron stars, black holes or implanted extra-terrestrial technology across the universe. Labelled as “FRB121101”, the radio bursts were first identified in a dwarf galaxy around 3 billion light years away from Earth in 2012 by the Parkes Telescope in Australia and has been the only one so far to repeat. In 2015, it was observed as the first fast radio burst seen to replicate that ruled out theories around burst origins, involving catastrophic obliteration of the “Progenitor.”

The Breakthrough Listen Project (BL) was initiated to discover alien civilisations and was founded by Professor Stephen Hawking along with Russian tycoon Yuri Milner in January 2016 and is a $100 million astronomical initiative. Hawking mentioned that, “it was time to commit to finding the answer to life beyond Earth.” The programme intends to survey 1,000,000 stars in closest proximity to the Earth and scan the entire plane of the Milky Way. Beyond our galaxy, the initiative aims to pick up messages from the 100 closest galaxies at 10 billion different frequencies.

Some of the possible explanations of these repeating radio pulses include observing them as neutron stars outbursts that have extremely strong magnetic fields, referred to as the “magnetars”.

This artist’s impression shows the magnetar in the very rich and young star cluster Westerlund 1. This remarkable cluster contains hundreds of very massive stars, some shining with a brilliance of almost one million suns. European astronomers have for the first time demonstrated that this magnetar — an unusual type of neutron star with an extremely strong magnetic field — probably was formed as part of a binary star system. The discovery of the magnetar’s former companion elsewhere in the cluster helps solve the mystery of how a star that started off so massive could become a magnetar, rather than collapse into a black hole. Credit: ESO/L. Calçada

Other speculations embrace them as directed energy sources and powerful laser bursts that the extra-terrestrial habitats use to power spacecraft. These strange emissions that hail from a distance appear to line up leading to speculations as callings from spacecraft and could be intentional rather than resultant of any physical events.

Andrew Siemion, Director of the Berkeley SETI Research Centre and of the Breakthrough Listen programme, told “The Guardian”, “whether or not radio fast bursts turn to be signatures of extra-terrestrial technology and Breakthrough Listen is helping to push frontiers of a new and rapidly growing area of our understanding of the universe around us.”

Scientists who detected the recent bursts said that these will allow a scope to the research fraternity to determine more of the actual happenings than in their earlier attempts. Initially scientists contemplated that these radio signals originated from the Earth, but the latest works exhibit that these messages have been radiating from outside the Earth’s atmosphere.

Postdoctoral researcher at BL, Vishal Gajjar, who discovered the increased activity, confirmed the source of the transmissions as coming from “newly active state”, and established that “the high resolution of the data obtained by the Listen instrument will allow measurement of the properties of these mysterious bursts at a higher precision than ever before.” The observations revealed that the radio bursts emitted higher frequencies that noted earlier, with the brightest emission arising at around 7 GHz. Over a period of 5 hours, the instrument accumulated 400 terabytes of data, observing across 4 to 8 GHz of frequency band. Gajjar added that, “the extraordinary capabilities of the backend receiver, which is able to record several gigahertz of bandwidth at a time, split into billions of individual channels, enable a new view of the frequency spectrum of FRBs, and should shed additional light on the processes giving rise to FRB emission.”

Further details to these latest outlandish findings reported as telegram is anticipated to subsequently follow.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
