Alien contact?

Has there been some Alien contact??? Are we seeing (or rather hearing) our alien brothers and sisters? That’s what scientists think with this latest discovery!

A fast burst of audio

They have detected a rare deep space signal called a ‘fast radio burst’. While the source of the signal is as of yet unknown. Astronomers are claiming that the sound can be from an all manor of things. Such as exotic stars, exploding black holes or, as we all like to romanticise, alien civilisations! We may finally have Alien contact! The reason we have been able to pick up this sound is due to a Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME). It’s so powerful and so sensitive it was able to pick up the emission, which has the lowest frequency of any burst that we as human’s have been able to record.

As a result, whatever produced the sound has been named ‘‘FRB 180725A’ which in turn is allegedly said that it must have been very powerful. There have only ever been two dozen fast radio bursts, the first which was disovered in 2007. They’re deemed as being extremely unusual, consequently why the theory of alien lifeforms being put forward.

What could it be?

Metro are reporting that Christopher Conselice, a professor of astrophysics at the University of Nottingham, told MailOnline the discovery of the latest FRB is very helpful! As it could help to pave the way for a greater understanding of what causes FRBs:

‘We don’t know their origin, they could be caused by a number of things,’ he said. ‘The fact the lower frequency FRB has been detected provides hope that we can understand more about where they come from and what causes them. ‘They could be caused by exploding stars, supernova, exotic stars like pulsars, magnetars, neutron stars or massive black holes at the centre of distant galaxies. ‘It could even be some other physical mechanism that we don’t yet understand.’


While it can be argued that it is unlikely that it is of alien origin. As we are unable to identify what caused the FRB, we cannot rule out Alien contact. Speaking in 2011 Avi Loeb, of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics research institute, stated of FRB’s:

 ‘Fast radio bursts are exceedingly bright given their short duration and origin at great distances, and we haven’t identified a possible natural source with any confidence…An artificial origin is worth contemplating and checking.’


Could we be hearing Aliens?

What would actually happen if we did make contact with Aliens?

Also, would the government keep it a secret or let us all know? Would there be pandemonium in the streets?

What do Aliens look like? Furthermore, is there a possibility that Aliens could be other humans on another planet and we are all exactly the same but live on different planets?
