Signs of Advanced Alien life in Our Galaxy?

Postby Trapper John » Thu Oct 15, 2015 4:26 am

Scientists at SETI and other organisations have become intrigued by what they term as the 'Strangest Star' in our galaxy.

They have been studying this particular Sun for over four years, since it was picked out of the 150,000 other stars studied by the Keplar telescope, as a Sun of special interest by several groups of separate scientists.

It appears this Sun has some huge objects orbiting it and it definitely isn't just planets. Many suggestions have been made but none are fool-proof explanations, so some at SETI are saying that although the last thing they think about is alien life, this could be one time where they might have to.

The suggestion is that the objects could be what many have hypothesised in the past, massive mega structures in space like say, giant arrays of solar power collectors which they believe advanced civilisations would erect in space to give them unlimited power.

It has now become such a contentious issue amongst astronomers that several scientists are now working with SETI and are proposing to direct a large radio telescope at the Star to see if they can detect radio waves of a 'technological nature' - if they do then they will ask for the VLA (Very Large Array) radio telescope in New Mexico to be pointed at it for a far more detailed investigation.

Those images are 1,500 years old, they're probably already here.

Bloody immigrants... :woteva:

It's all bollocks anyway:

By considering the observational constraints on dust clumps orbiting a normal main-sequence star, we conclude that the scenario most consistent with the data in hand is the passage of a family of exocomet fragments, all of which are associated with a single previous breakup event. We discuss the necessity of future observations to help interpret the system.

Observations of KIC 8462852 should continue to aid in unraveling its mysteries. First and foremost, long-term photometric monitoring is imperative in order to catch future dipping events. It would be helpful to know whether observations reveal no further dips, or continued dips. If the dips continue, are they periodic? Do they change in size or shape? On one hand, the more dips the more problematic from the lack of IR emission perspective. Likewise, in the comet scenario there could be no further dips; the longer the dips persist in the light curve, the further around the orbit the fragments would have to have spread.

Not bollox, there are 2 scenarios, 1 comets, makes it more convienient and 2 artificial structure. Occums is not always correct Stooo.... :thumbsup:

I admit, i hope it is scenario Nr 2 but understand Nr1 is more paletable for the masses.

Let me get this straight, SETI stands for "Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence" And we have this quote from SETI....

so some at SETI are saying that although the last thing they think about is alien life


No fucking wonder we ain't heard anything because SETI don't have "looking" high up on the list.... :thumbsup:

Goodonya SETI, getting your prio's in perspective.... :trollface:

It's a long way away and not very clear, gravity will have altered the image in the 1,500 light year journey in any case.

I know what SETI stands for - do you know what SATI stands for?

I try to condense an OP into a few paragraphs giving a broad outline, rather than just post a link which usually contains pages and pages of stuff people won't read. If people are interested they'll look for more themselves. :thumbsup:

This wasn't discovered by SETI, it was noticed by various astronomers and groups, SETI came later to the party. What I believe I'd said was 'THEY' as in the astronomical scientific community, and as in 'THEY' might have to think outside the box on this one.

If I'd have meant SETI I'd have said 'WE' wouldn't I? ....... still never waste a good trolling opportunity, eh. :roll:

BTW ..... SATI stands for the Search for Australian Tiny Intelligences - you must be very familiar with them?

You truely are a thick racist cunt, You were no doubt drunk at the time of your response so all is forgiven.

Now, let me clear a few things up for you...

WE as in the forum population, can see a quote from you supposedly from SETI claiming pretty much that interest in Alien intelligence was not high on the agenda.

knowhere in my post did i claim it was SETI's discovery you dill... try reading, it does help actually.

SATI? Yeah, I am familiar with them, they have made contact, unfortunately, they are still looking in your area, could be another decade before they can publish any ground breaking paper of a possible breakthrough........

fucking twat...
