Harvard Scientists Say Aliens May Be Using Giant Radio Beams To Travel The Cosmos

6 days agoNews : Huffington Post

Two Harvard University scientists are suggesting that mysterious fast radio bursts, detected in faraway galaxies, may be evidence of aliens traveling through the cosmos. FRBs are extremely bright flashes of radio waves that last for only a thousandth of a second and are detected by earthbound telescopes. Show More Summary

Alien technology? Harvard scientists propose source for fast radio bursts

There are plenty of strange phenomena lurking in the universe, and fast radio bursts are among the more mysterious. So named for their less-than-5-millisecond duration, the source of these intense, high-energy light bursts continues to elude scientists. Show More Summary

Mysterious fast radio bursts might come from alien solar sail spacecraft

Now that fast radio bursts have defied explanation for a decade, scientists are starting to wonder aloud if these extremely high-power emissions could be artificial. The post Mysterious fast radio bursts might come from alien solar sail spacecraft appeared first on ExtremeTech.

Are Mysterious Fast Radio Bursts Propelling Alien Spacecraft? | Video

The feasibility of a gigantic radio transmitter beaming Fast Radio Burst (FRB) signals across the cosmos has been studied. Could these signals be propelling alien spacecraft?

What if fast radio bursts were powering alien starships? - CNET

Strange signals from billions of light-years away may have a natural cause. If they're artificial, they'd require some awesome engineering, say scientists.

Scientists Hypothesize Radio Bursts From Beyond Our Galaxy Could Be Driving Super Fast Alien Ships

last weekHumor / odd : Geekosystem

One of the persisting questions in science is, "Are we alone in the Universe?" and we've long been searching the skies for potential signals from alien civilizations. Now, scientists are considering a new possibility: We might have already...Show More Summary

Scientists Say Fast Radio Bursts May Power Alien Spaceships

Two Harvard professors studying fast radio bursts – those mysterious brief blasts coming from unknown sources beyond our galaxy – say these huge amounts of energy are not necessarily messages but may actually be being used to power alien spaceships for intergalactic travel. Fast radio bursts are...

THEY’RE NOT SAYING IT’S ALIENS… BUT IT’S ALIENS: Could Mysterious Cosmic Light Flashes Be Powering…

THEY’RE NOT SAYING IT’S ALIENS… BUT IT’S ALIENS: Could Mysterious Cosmic Light Flashes Be Powering Alien Spacecraft? Astronomers have catalogued just 20 or so of these brief, superbright flashes, which are known as fast radio bursts (FRBs), since the first one was detected in 2007. FRBs seem to be coming from galaxies billions of light-years […]

Fast Radio Bursts and Alien Life

Fast radio bursts (FRBs) are brief, bright, and distant bursts of radio emissions that are of unknown origin. Recently they have been in the news because of a paper which explores the feasibility that FRBs have an alien origin. “Fast radio bursts are exceedingly bright given their short duration and origin at great distances, and […]

This week in space: SpaceX, Blue Origin, and still no aliens

Cryovolcanoes, fast radio bursts, Blue Origin, and SpaceX. Plus, scientists are speculating about a cosmic radio analog to the OMG particle. The post This week in space: SpaceX, Blue Origin, and still no aliens appeared first on ExtremeTech.

Could fast radio bursts really be powering alien space ships?

Two researchers have suggested that mysterious bursts of energy could propel alien spaceships around the universe – if such alien travellers happen to exist

Wild New Theory Suggests Radio Bursts Beyond Our Galaxy Are Powering Alien Starships

2 weeks agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmodo

Since their discovery ten years ago, fast radio bursts have confounded astronomers. These intergalactic pulses of radio energy have defied explanation, but a new theory suggests a technological origin, whereby aliens use these beams to propel their ships through space. Extremely speculative stuff, to be sure, but it’s… Read more...

"Fast Radio Bursts Could Be Powering Alien Probes" --Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics

"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," said theorist Avi Loeb of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. "An artificial origin is...        

Could fast radio bursts be powering alien probes?

(Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics) The search for extraterrestrial intelligence has looked for many different signs of alien life, from radio broadcasts to laser flashes, without success. However, newly published research suggests that mysterious phenomena called fast radio bursts could be evidence of advanced alien technology. Show More Summary

Astronomers propose a cell phone search for galactic fast radio bursts

Fast radio bursts (FRBs) are brief spurts of radio emission, lasting just one-thousandth of a second, whose origins are mysterious. Fewer than two dozen have been identified in the past decade using giant radio telescopes such as the 1,000-foot dish in Arecibo, Puerto Rico. Of those, only one has been pinpointed to originate from a galaxy about 3 billion light-years away.

Astronomers propose a cell phone search for galactic fast radio bursts

(Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics) Fast radio bursts seem to come from distant galaxies, but there is no obvious reason that, every once in a while, an FRB wouldn't occur in our own Milky Way galaxy too. If it did, astronomers suggest that it would be 'loud' enough that a global network of cell phones or small radio receivers could 'hear' it.
