For months she suggested the signals could be of an extraterrestrial intelligent origin, but they were later proven to be rapidly spinning stars known as pulsars.

"Outside the Milky Way..."

If the people doesn't understand the difference between the Milky Way and the solar system, why not stop at "extraterrestrial?"

That big fire in the sky, every day, its a star, and a pretty modest one. It would be invisible to the naked human eye only 50 light years out.

He plans to have a show on in July 2015, through a podcast somewhere.

He is on Facebook but his limit for ‘friends’ has been reached back over a year ago. However, he has made that announcement on there and it is how I know of it.

Personally, I can’t wait. I love his shows.

Art should touch base with George Noory.

Noory mentioned on his show (formerly Art’s show) a while ago he hadn’t heard from Art for quite a while.

Just saying.

Actually most stay, and then wait to get legalized, and then vote Democrat.

One five millisecond pulse above background, just an amplitude spike with no apparent modulation?

Things must be going real slow over at the radio telescope place :)

Pulsars too were originally thought to possibly be a sign of extraterrestrial intelligent life.
