Is there Life Out There


“Very Unusual” Repeated Radio Signals Detected From Galaxy 1.5 Billion Light Years Away


  • The Facts:A team using the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment, or CHIME, has announced the detection of 13 new radio signals from space, including an especially rare repeating burst. Only one other repeating fast radio burst was known to exist.
  • Reflect On:Could this be from alien life in our galaxy or distant galaxies? Do we not already have evidence of ET life based on the extensive testimonies and declassified documents?

Astronomers have once against detected a set of strange signals coming from a distant galaxy 1.5 billion light years away. The signals have been picked up by a telescope in Canada, and the nature and precise origin of the radio waves is completely unknown.

Scientists recorded 13 fast radio bursts, commonly known as FRBs, these are essentially extremely powerful energetic emissions that can be measured by the technology we have produced here on Earth. These blasts only last a few milliseconds on average, which makes the need for computer analysis of them necessary in order to make any sense of them. While we are unsure of where exactly these signals come from, scientists have been cataloging them for quite some time now, but a lot is still unknown.

What makes this recent detection so special is the fact that among the 13 FBRs was a very unusual repeating signal that came from the same source, approximately 1.5 billion light years away. Such a repeating signal has only been reported once before, which makes this particular detection more mysterious, and quite historical.

Knowing that there is another suggests that there could be more out there. And with more repeaters and more sources available to study, we maybe be able to understand these cosmic puzzles – where they’re from and what causes them.” (source)

The detection came from the CHIME observatory in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley, which consists of four 100-metre-long, semi-cylindrical antennas, which scan the entire northern sky each day.

“We have discovered a second repeater and its properties are very similar to the first repeater, this tells us more about the properties of repeaters as a population ” said Shriharsh Tendulkar of McGill University, Canada.

“This tells us more about the properties of repeaters as a population.”

Again, this is only the second time a “repeater” has been found, and although we don’t really know what that means, Tedulkar  emphasized that the structure of this repeater is very similar to the previous one, the only other one to be detected.

The team has published their new findings in the journal Nature.

Next Steps?

Right now, the next step is for the researchers is to understand whether the repeating FBRs and single FBRs are from different sources. Where do they come from? What objects are they coming from? Are they related in some sort of way to each other?

We are trying to figure these things out, so that’s really exciting

By the sounds of it, obviously scientists have no clue where these are coming from at this point, and what exactly is sending them, but that’s all part of the fun.

There is a lot of fun in the not knowing. You keep adding more information, but as in all sciences, whenever you solve on mystery, it always opens up three more. –  Shami Chatterjee, a senior researcher at the Cornell Center for Astrophysics and Planetary Science who was not involved in the latest discoveries

The radio waves get twisted as they travel through space and can scatter or be absorbed by gas and plasma. The team believes that all 13 bursts likely originated from dense, turbulent regions inside of their host galaxies, particularly areas with a lot of violent activity, such as near dense supernova remnants or close to black holes.

Could They Be Alien?

There is also the possibility that perhaps, these could be signs of extraterrestrial life, but this is common with any-type of mainstream science article contemplating the idea, they completely ignore the fact that there is already “abundant evidence that we are being contacted, that civilizations have been visited us for a very long time.” – Dr. Brian O’Leary, Ex NASA Astronaut and Princeton physics professor.

“There is another way, whether it’s wormholes, or warping space, there’s got to be a way to generate energy so that you can pull it out of the vacuum, and the fact that they’re [extraterrestrials] here shows us that they found a way.”(source)– Jack Kasher, Ph.D, Professor Emeritus of Physics, University of Nebraska.

Whether these signals do or do not originate from extraterrestrial life, in my opinion, is irrelevant when talking about the alien subject. We already know they exist and have been in contact with them, the question is why do we still explore these signals as somehow pertaining to alien life when the more fascinating fact is that they already exist and we know that?

The Takeaway

As human beings, we are born curious, it’s simply in our nature. From the moment of our first breath, we become explorers and discoverers, full of curiosity and wonder. This natural state also represents humanity, and throughout history, all we have done is explore and discover.

Unfortunately today, things have changed. We are no longer living in an environment that’s conducive to what we are naturally built to do. Instead of following our hearts and curiosity, we are all put on the same path, into the same system, and encouraged to become “a productive member of society” by entering into the workforce in order to pay bills and put food on the table.

The truth is, we have much greater potential than that, and as a collective we can create a human experience where everybody can truly thrive. Just imagine what we’d do if we chose to provide everybody with their basic needs, and if we unhooked ourselves from the dependency of a very small group of people and the corporations they run. What if we used a model of cooperation, and love and instead of being taught to compete in the game of ‘survival of the fittest.’

Many still don’t see how this is possible, or how a moneyless/workless society is possible, but if it was achieved, we would go back to what we naturally do, explore and discover.

Today, the gifts of exploration and discovery have been replaced with limitation and brainwashing. Fortunately, humanity is waking up. It’s quite clear that there’s a massive shift in consciousness taking place right now, and we are becoming more aware of is not only happening right in front of us in our world, but how much potential we actually have. If you don’ think the world can change, it simply means your mind and perception is limited to one small viewpoint.

The search for extraterrestrial life perhaps represents our desire to discover and explore. Space is the next frontier, and most likely not the final one. The realization that we are not alone leaves no aspect of humanity untouched, and it will allow us to learn more about ourselves, as well as the nature of reality, human consciousness, the soul, and much more.

These radio signal detections do nothing but open the minds of the masses even more, in what seems to be a speedy process to acclimatize the human mind to the idea that there is much more out here than just us.

Mystery Radio Waves From Deep Space Captured Live, Sender Unknown

 Mystery Radio Waves From Deep Space Captured Live, Sender Unknown

by RT

An unknown radio signal, which may have come from a black hole, colliding neutron stars (or – for those who ‘believe’ – alien life), has been picked up by astronomers live for the first time ever. Its origins remain mysterious.

The fast radio bursts are quick, bright flashes of radio waves that last only milliseconds, but still emit as much energy as the sun in an entire day.

This is the first time that these radio waves have been spotted live. The first burst was picked up in 2007 by sifting through old data at the Parkes Radio Telescope in Eastern Australia. Only seven others have been seen since then.

This time, the mysterious waves were picked with the use of 12 telescopes in Australia, Chile, Germany, Hawaii, India, California and the Canary Islands.

Because they observed the radio waves in real time, they were also able to try and find other wavelengths, like x-rays or infrared to find out their source…but remained unable to find anything.

“The fact that we did not see light in other wavelengths eliminates a number of astronomical phenomena that are associated with violent events such as gamma-ray bursts from exploding stars and supernovae, which were otherwise candidates for the burst,” Daniele Malesani, of the University of Copenhagen, told Astronomy Magazine.

The radio waves were polarized, which suggests that they were near an object with a large magnetic field.

“The theories are now that the radio wave burst might be linked to a very compact type of object – such as neutron stars or black holes – and the bursts could be connected to collisions or ‘star quakes,’ he added.

The radio signals originated up to 5.5 billion light-years away, from outside our Milky Way Galaxy and that they were caught by astronomers possibly up to a decade after they happened.

The catch took place in May 2014, but the results of the study got published this week in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

No one knows where exactly such waves come from, or what causes them. Astronomers have postulated that the mysterious signals might be emitted by exploding stars or supernovas; a collision of binary neutron stars or binary white dwarf star could also be a source.

One more possible reason could be a blitzar – a supermassive neutron star that should have become a black hole, but is spinning so fast that it is temporarily prevented from collapsing.

“We found out what it wasn’t. The burst could have hurled out as much energy in a few milliseconds as the Sun does in an entire day. But the fact that we did not see light in other wavelengths eliminates a number of astronomical phenomena that are associated with violent events such as gamma-ray bursts from exploding stars and supernovae, which were otherwise candidates for the burst,” Malesani said.

Having set “the trap,” the team is now waiting to catch another burst and maybe get some answers to the mystery.
