They are all too far away.

Yeah.

With our current technology any serious space travel just isn't possible. We need a new propulsion system, probably one powered by fusion. Unfortunately as of yet fusion generators create so much heat they melt every substance known to mankind that we could build them with.

And even if we figure out a new energy source for our spaceships, there's the problem of the theory of relativity. If Einstein was right, not only could we not travel faster than the speed of light which would still make for some seriously long space trips, but the warping of time that would occur at those speeds creates a lot of scary scenarios. Think about going on a little 2 year space cruise, only to come back and find out 100 years have passed, your whole family is dead and nobody remembers you.

It looks like a facehugger. The longer arm is the tail.

http://www.iflscience.com/space/scientists-claim-to-have-found-234-alien-civilizations/

Quote
Ermanno Borra and his graduate student Eric Trottier have analyzed over 2.5 million stars and galaxies for pulses of light emitted at regular intervals and discovered it in 234 stars similar in size to our Sun. The team believes that alien civilizations are behind those signals.

Quote
“We find that the detected signals have exactly the shape of an ETI signal predicted in the previous publication and are therefore in agreement with this hypothesis,” the researchers wrote in the paper.

“The fact that they are only found in a very small fraction of stars within a narrow spectral range centered near the spectral type of the Sun is also in agreement with the ETI hypothesis.”

Quote
The researchers admit that although they believe aliens is the most likely explanation, this is yet to be confirmed.

The Stephen Hawking-backed project Breakthrough Listen will conduct follow-up observations of these 234 stars, but the team at UC Berkeley, where the project's science program is based, invite people to be skeptical.

The most telling part for me:

Quote
These superfast pulses will have to be generated by incredibly powerful lasers, like the one at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Interestingly, in previous publications Borra has stated that this area of astronomy is the least explored, which raises the question on why these aliens would all decide to communicate in such a complicated and energy-consuming way.

Nope, it's hundreds of super intelligent alien societies.

I read this somewhere, don't remember where. how terrifying would it be if we received and decoded an alien signal for the very first time and it said "be quiet or they will find you" over and over.

The presence of intelligent life from outside of earth would do all sorts of fun things to those with literal interpretations of ancient religious creation stories.  That's the single biggest benefit to mankind of finding clear evidence of E.T.'s.

:Chirp:


Obviously the technological innovation to create such a burst even once would be astonishing.  It’s been traveling for billions of years tho, so who knows.

it’s from a star with an incredibly large gravitational field, mystery solved
