Oct 6 - Scientists Spotted Mysterious "Pulse Of Light" From New Planet"

An astronomer picked up a mysterious pulse of light coming from the direction of the newly discovered Earth-like planet almost two years ago, it has emerged.

Dr Ragbir Bhathal, a scientist at the University of Western Sydney, picked up the odd signal in December 2008, long before it was announced that the star Gliese 581 has habitable planets in orbit around it.

A member of the Australian chapter of SETI, the organisation that looks for communication from distant planets, Dr Bhathal had been sweeping the skies when he discovered a 'suspicious' signal from an area of the galaxy that holds the newly-discovered Gliese 581g.
The remarkable coincidence adds another layer of mystery to the announcement last night that scientists had discovered another planet in the system: Gliese 581g - the most Earth-like planet ever found.
Dr Bhathal's discovery had come just months before astronomers announced that they had found a similar, slightly less habitable planet around the same star 20 light years away. This planet was called Gliese 581e.
When asked about his discovery at the time Dr Bhathal admitted he had been really excited about what he had possibly stumbled across.

He said: 'Whenever there’s a clear night, I go up to the observatory and do a run on some of the celestial objects. Looking at one of these objects, we found this signal.

'And you know, I got really excited with it. So next I had to analyse it. We have special software to analyse these signals, because when you look at celestial objects through the equipment we have, you also pick up a lot of noise.'
He went on: 'We found this very sharp signal, sort of a laser lookalike thing which is the sort of thing we’re looking for - a very sharp spike. And that is what we found. So that was the excitement about the whole thing.'
For months after his discovery Dr Bhathal scanned the skies for a second signal to see whether it was just a glitch in his instrumentation but his search came to nothing.
But the discovery of Earth-like planets around Gliese 581 - both 581e and 581d, which was in the habitable zone - has also caught the public imagination.
Documentary-maker RDF and social-networking site Bebo used a radio telescope in Ukraine to send a powerful focused beam of information - 500 messages from the public in the form of radiowaves - to Gliese 581.

GLIESE 581g FACT FILE
Diameter - 1.2 to 1.4 times that of the Earth
Mass - 3.1 and 4.3 times that of the Earth
Average surface temperature - between -24F and 10F (-31C and -12C)
Distance from the Earth - 20 light years or 118,000,000,000,000 miles
Time needed to travel to Gliese 581g in a rocket travelling one tenth the speed of light, or 19,000 miles per second - 200 years
One of six planets to orbit the star Gliese 581
Length of year - 37 Earth days
Gravity - similar or slightly higher than Earth
Distance from its sun - around six million miles
The planet orbits a red dwarf which is 50 times cooler and a third the size of our Sun

Composition - rocky with liquid water and atmosphere.


And the Australian science minister at the time organised 20,000 users of Twitter to send messages towards the distant solar system in the wake of the discoveries.

And Dr Steven Vogt who led the study at the University of California, Santa Cruz, today said that he was '100 per cent sure ' that there was life on the planet.
The planet lies in the star's 'Goldilocks zone' - the region in space where conditions are neither too hot or too cold for liquid water to form oceans, lakes and rivers.
The planet also appears to have an atmosphere, a gravity like our own and could well be capable of life. Researchers say the findings suggest the universe is teeming with world like our own.
'If these are rare, we shouldn't have found one so quickly and so nearby,'

'The number of systems with potentially habitable planets is probably on the order of 10 or 20 per cent, and when you multiply that by the hundreds of billions of stars in the Milky Way, that's a large number. There could be tens of billions of these systems in our galaxy.'

We are living in truly remarkable times.... I think the government/church is getting jealous of all this E.T. talk...


So as a word of warning to my fellow brothers who may read this...

Get ready for an onlaught of "focus shifting" from those in power


Furthermore... If you dont believe in life outside of Earth...

Kill your family... I'd like another Hot Topic

dude i agree with you, but no need to get your panties in a knot.

plus we dont know for sure, all of this is just a scientific guessing game, and putting things into account.

Every religious belief is a guessing game man...

Im not tryna bash religion im bashing people who dont believe that life outside of Earth is possible...

Its called karma... and im just glad i canceled my subscription to the Bible or any other religious fabrication a long time ago

See this is coming too fast, im beginning to become cautious of this s**t. but honestly it's makes more sense to use light to communicate then radio signals for the simple fact thinking like this....

They say radio wave travel at the speed of light, but sending radio signals when you do not understand the receivers language is a waste of time.

But sending light will not only allow you to judge the distance and feasibility or contacting intelligent life, it also cuts out the error in making first contact. (imho)

but on the real, this s**t beginning to be a bit too fishy

You know the difference between scientific and religious guessing games? Scientists actually work to prove what they believe.

Uhh ... [Chappelle_Voice]Nah, I'm good man.[/]

And for all these scientists know, the inhabitants might have just had their equivalent of nuclear war, and the by-product was a pulse sent out which happened to have been picked up.

My point, Stephen Hawking was right. We should be much more concerned with avoiding aliens not trying to signal them. They're far more likely to want to do exactly what we do when we discover a new species, figure out how we can best exploit it. It's pretty fuked up that anyone and everyone with a little technology and money can send a signal out and, in doing so, potentially endanger the lives of everyone on this planet.

This is dumb.

The scientist has proved nothing; nothing has changed.. the plot will not thicken. Seriously, looking at star 20 light years away, b**ch doesn't know s**t. The article said "there was life", not is life...maybe we all came here from Gliese before the dinosaurs and no one remembers how to get home haha. This loser could say the planet rains diamonds and jellybeans and no one will ever be able to prove him wrong, it's 20 fn lightyears away. gtfo

And wtf does karma have to do with any of this... Unless you were just stating the only religious fabrication which you subscribe now??

According to the Bible, Earth is not the result of billions of years of stellar evolution during which many other planets were created. Earth was created before any other planet or star existed.

Earth came into existence on the first day of Creation (Genesis 1:1).

God withheld the creation of the Sun, Moon and stars until the fourth day (Genesis 1:14-19).

Earth is unique and holds center stage in God's Creation according to the Bible..


Im sorry ya'll probably didnt get that far

theyre looking for spikes in signals dude

which can only be produced by technology - electro-magnetic i think ie artificial intelligence or what not

theyre not reaching at all



these bebo fools on the other hand though....
