Claim of Alien Signal from Planet Gliese 581g Called 'Very Suspicious'
Space.com ^ | Oct. 11, 2010 | Denise Chow

The recent discovery of Gliese 581g, an alien planet in the habitable zone of another star, has been an exciting development for scientists probing the galaxy for signs of extraterrestrial life. At least one claim of a possible signal from the planet has already surfaced – and been met with harsh skepticism among the science community.

Following the Sept. 29 announcement of the discovery of Gliese 581g, astronomer Ragbir Bhathal, a scientist at the University of Western Sydney, claimed to have detected a suspicious pulse of light nearly two years ago, that came from the same area of the galaxy as the location of Gliese 581g, according to the U.K.'s Daily Mail online

from the linked article: " . . . Drake is credited with conducting the first search for signals from extraterrestrial intelligences 50 years ago as part of what was then called Project Ozma."

So, so close, Dr Drake.

I bet. The signal is probably only in one persons head

I have yet to see frequency, modulation (if any), PRF (if any), or any other technical information about this supposed contact.

When I see that tech data, maybe I can decide between it's horse apples or, maybe, just maybe, it's a signal.

But until I see the data, I'm not impressed.

And just think what a real engineer or scientist could do. As everybody on FR knows, 'I'm just a cook'.

At first glance, since this planet is more massive (3 to 4 times) than the earth, I thought I wouldn’t want to go there because I would weigh too much. However, it is larger than the earth (between 1.3 and 2 times) so:

The force of gravity depends on a few things. First, it depends on your mass and the mass of the planet you are standing on. If you double your mass, gravity pulls on you twice as hard. If the planet you are standing on is twice as massive, gravity also pulls on you twice as hard. On the other hand, the farther you are from the center of the planet, the weaker the pull between the planet and your body. The force gets weaker quite rapidly. If you double your distance from the planet, the force is one-fourth. If you triple your separation, the force drops to one-ninth. Depending on the actual diameter, it might not be so bad.

The answer is obvious. The flash was from a weapon being launched against us. A massive warhead is on its way to Earth and could arrive at any time. We must launch an immediate counter-strike against the Gliesian menace!

The signal took too long. It's actually says "Douglas sucks, vote Lincoln..."

"a suspicious pulse of light"

Those were searchlights, heralding the opening of a new strip joint.

I think it's a duplicate, so no ping. Thanks Duke C..
