Alien hunters detect mystery radio signal from direction of Earthlike planet
Alien-hunting astronomers in China and the US say they discovered
a mysterious radio signal from the direction of an Earthlike planet.
The narrowband signal – picked up by the world’s largest radio telescope
was “meaningful”, though further confirmation was needed, the scientists said.
The candidate signal came from the direction of Kepler-438, a red dwarf star in the constellation Lyra
some 473 light years from the Earth, according to the team’s manuscript submitted to Research Square.
a preprint service where researchers share unpublished work for community feedback.
Orbiting Kepler-438 in its habitable zone is Kepler-438b,
one of the most Earthlike planets ever found outside the solar system.
