In a development that has resulted in much excitement among scientists, strange signals have been detected coming from a dwarf star that is located around 11 light years from earth. The signals were tracked by scientists working at the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico. The signals are coming from a red dwarf star named Ross 128. Speaking about the development, Professor Abel Mendez, planetary astrobiologist and director of the Planetary Habitability Laboratory at the University of Puerto Rico said, “We realized that there were some very peculiar signals in the 10-minute dynamic spectrum that we obtained from ‘Ross 128’ (GJ 447).”
However, the professor clarified that the chances that the signals are being sent by an alien species are quite remote. Nonetheless, the professor and the entire scientific community are currently baffled about the strange signals, and no one has a proper explanation to the signals. “We do not know the origin of these signals but there are three main possible explanations: they could be emissions from ‘Ross 128’ similar to Type II solar flares, emissions from another object in the field of view of ‘Ross 128’, or just burst from a high orbit satellite since low orbit satellites are quick to move out of the field of view,” Mendez said.
