Astronomers receive a mysterious signal from the star Proxime Centauri

Astronomers specializing in the discovery of extraterrestrial life have discovered an intriguing radio signal that appears to originate from the region in which it is located. Proxima CentauriInformation about the nearest star to the sun Guardian Last Friday (18th)

According to the English newspaper, the mysterious radio show was made by experts who are part of the Listen Breathrog project during a 30-hour observation conducted with the Parkes Radio Telescope in Australia between April and May 2019. These researchers are already used to “hearing” such signals, but this time something caught my eye.

One of the reasons the researchers left out is the 980 MHz signal emission range, which is not emitted by manned spacecraft or satellites. Another curious detail is how its frequency changes, suggesting that scientists originated from the surface of the exoplanet.

The transmission characteristics that could have come from a star located 4.2 light-years from Earth have gained so much fame that they have led the team to be classified as the first serious candidate since it was known. “Wow!” Sign. They call for recording 72-second radio waves from 1977, which is still unclear today.

The study is ongoing

Since the discovery of the Proxime Centauri radio signal last year, astronomers have launched a vigilant investigation. One of the first steps was to observe the star again, which did not give positive results.

They analyze the signal to try to determine if it was artificially produced or is it a natural transmission like the others, and with further experiments, the Red Dwarf has more observations. Park’s radio telescope should be used.

A study entitled “Candidate for Penetrating Listening 1” (BLC1) has just been finalized and published.
