Mysterious Signal from Proxima Centauri

Mysterious Signal from Proxima Centauri
Definitely interesting. It is narrowband so seems to be a real signal. Most likely terrestrial in origin but until the source is found, it's a legit “candidate.”

Quote:Alien Hunters Discover Mysterious Signal from Proxima Centauri

Found this autumn in archival data gathered last year, the signal appears to emanate from the direction of our neighboring star and cannot yet be dismissed as Earth-based interference, raising the very faint prospect that it is a transmission from some form of advanced extraterrestrial intelligence (ETI)—a so-called “technosignature.” Now, speaking to Scientific American, the scientists behind the discovery caution there is still much work to be done, but admit the interest is justified. 

Most curiously, it occupies a very narrow band of the radio spectrum: 982 megahertz, specifically, which is a region typically bereft of transmissions from human-made satellites and spacecraft. “We don’t know of any natural way to compress electromagnetic energy into a single bin in frequency” such as this one, Siemion says. Perhaps, he says, some as-yet-unknown exotic quirk of plasma physics could be a natural explanation for the tantalizingly concentrated radio waves. But “for the moment, the only source that we know of is technological."

teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

'Terrestrial in origin', me arse. This is clearly the first sign of a massive invasion by the Proximates. I would like to be the first to extend a warm welcome to our new galactic Overlords.

Ignorance is never valid grounds for the rejection of established facts.

I'm putting together an alliance with the mindworms to resist them. Don't worry drones, I won't go!

20 years ago that frequency was used for analog cellphones.......


Maybe ET is just phoning home.....

Yeah, aliens who invade and exterminate us. That's exactly what 2020 needed.

It would be a relief after a shitty year.
