Post Mysterious Signal From Outer Space
Mysterious Signal From Outer Space

Is Someone Trying To Contact Us?


A mysterious signal coming from a region of space between the constellations Pisces and Aries has been picked up on three different occasions by the Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico.

The signal is very puzzling and does not resemble any known astronomical phenomenon. Researchers who have studied its frequency pattern do not believe it is natural interference or noise.

Was the signal transmitted deliberately by an extraterrestrial civilization on a distant planet? Scientists remain cautious but we cannot dismiss the possibility.

Astronomers believe there are about 10,000 intelligent civilizations in our galaxy alone.

Lets not forget that there are hundreds of billions of galaxies in the Universe, which means the Universe may actually be teeming with life.

Some years ago, in 2008, astronomers announced they picked up a mysterious signal from outer space. It was not the last time they heard the mysterious sound.

SETI and other astronomers were excited about the news, but they were also worried the signal may never be completely decoded.

"We probably won't be able to decode it. We'll know something's out there, but we won't know much about their civilization, " said Dan Wertheimer of the UC Berkeley SETI Project.

SHGb02+14a, as the signal has been named has been heard on three occasions adding up to about a minute. This is not long enough firmly to establish its source, but its frequency of 1420 megahertz has interested scientists, as it is a main frequency at which hydrogen, the most common element in the Universe, absorbs and emits energy.
