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a preprint service where researchers share unpublished work for community feedback.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.
