Solar Mystery
Are mysterious particles shooting through Earth during solar flare events?

The powerful signal, which lasted for just milliseconds, could have been a fluke, but then the team found three more equally energetic transient flashes all far removed from the galactic plane and coming from different points in the sky.

Analysis later indicated that, unlike most cosmic radio signals that originate in the Milky Way or a nearby neighbor galaxy, these four seem to have come from beyond.

We are not alone!


These are quasars. That doesn't mean you're alone though. Lots of "aliens" hang out on earth (if that's what you want to call them) and most of them don't want to be your friend.

From the article, I thought they had ruled out Quasars.



Scientists often negate facts of physics that are beyond their comprehension. With signals such as this they aren't being produced right now it takes time for a signal far away to reach earth's ability to hear it. In that transmission the waves are affected by certain things between there and here such as gravity, object interference, and "anti-gravity" (dark matter/black holes). Because a quasar is moving when transmitting that signal they might pick it up intermittently but there's zero guarantee that said signal will be continuous (in fact unless it's really close there is zero chance it will be continuous). Even if they could track it's movement and adjust the radio telescopes to receive portions of the signal would be removed and/or distorted because space is full of stuff that alters or "eats" light and energy.

They're just playing it up like it's some alien ship or civilization sending out a message because that snags readers (I assume that's what they're doing). I doubt they even understand the physics behind why that's a false description of this activity and I doubt they care.

We've got aliens on this planet and they can't even detect their "signals"/communication (let alone their presence) what makes them think they can do it across the friggin galaxy? Just hackery masquerading as "science" to justify a job that shouldn't even exist.

Good points. I run Seti@home and have for years, mainly cause I hate to have my box on, consuming electricity and not be doing something. I've read books on Seti and Ceti from the University Library.

I think we live in a vast cosmos, and trying to find other life in it, is like trying to throw a dart in a hurricane and hitting a bullseye.
