Space Aliens Communicate With Earth. Maybe.

Space Aliens Communicate With Earth. Maybe.

“Two Canadian astronomers published a study that claims an anomaly in the pulsing of a group of stars is possibly evidence of an alien civilization. ….

The scientists Ermanno Borra and Éric Trottier from the Université Laval in Quebec analyzed modulations in 2.5 million stars from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey project and concluded that 234 of them exhibited strange behavior. In fact, the stars seemed to be signaling, with the conceivable explanation that it’s aliens trying to make contact.”

“Either stars are strange, or there are 234 aliens trying to contact us,” Evan Gough, Universe Today via Phys.org

Digital TV Transition Rough on Space Aliens

Digital TV Transition Rough on Space Aliens

“Lamentably, alien audiences may be frustrated by the switch to digital television,” says Seth Shostak, Senior Astronomer at the SETI Institute.

“It’s not impossible to pick up our DTV broadcasts from your favorite M-class planet, but I reckon it would require antennas at least five times larger than demanded for good, old analog TV. ET may balk at the additional cost.”

It is not known if the Federal Government has set up  DTV Transition Drop-In Help Centers at Area 51 or Spaceport America.
