Scientists Find ‘Odd Radio Circles’ Emitting Ring-Like Pulses in Space

• During a survey by the Australian Square Kilometer Array Pathfinder telescope, astrophysicists’ cameras discovered unexplained radio wave patterns being emitted from an invisible force in deep space, possibly from another galaxy. The waves take the form of blasts of colorful circular objects, lending to its name, ‘Odd Radio Circles’.

Nature Astronomy reports that researchers concluded that it is a ‘never before recorded phenomenon’. No optical, infrared or x-ray source could be traced to the pulses. The extraordinary study offers a tantalizing glimpse of a deep space mystery that could one day yield answers about the mysteries of the universe.

• The circular pulses were found to match a similar radio wave structure located in March 2013. But rather than normal sphere space objects – like remnants of dying stars as well as proto-planetary discs – these new ones “appear to be a new class of astronomical objects”. “The objects appear in radio images as circular edge-brightened discs about one arcmin diameter, and do not seem to correspond to any known type of object,” the astrophysicists wrote. “We speculate that they may represent a spherical shock wave from an extra-galactic transient event, or the outflow, or a remnant, from a radio galaxy viewed end-on.”

• Speaking of weird radio signals coming from another galaxy, this past February, ‘Fast Radio Bursts’ were documented at the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment in in British Columbia. (see previous ExoArticle here) The ‘FRBs’ were coming from a galaxy some 500 million light-years from our solar system sending out fast radio bursts like clockwork. The cycle stretches over a roughly 16 day period, including 1-2 bursts per hour over a four-day period and then a 12-day gap before it starts again.

• Such signals have long given fuel to theories about extraterrestrial life existing elsewhere across the cosmos.

 

Astrophysicists have discovered unexplained radio wave patterns being emitted from an invisible force in deep space.

Known as ‘Odd Radio Circles’ or ORC, it’s believed they may be coming from a mysterious structure from another galaxy, unseen by human eyes.

The waves take the form of blasts of colourful circular objects, which were pinpointed by cameras during a survey by the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder telescope (ASKA).

Despite searching for an optical, infrared, or X-ray source to the pulses, none could be traced, leaving experts baffled.

Researchers have concluded it is a never before recorded phenomenon, a review in Nature Astronomy reports.

The results of the extraordinary study are still to be peer-reviewed but offer a tantalising glimpse of a deep space mystery that could one day yield answers about the mysteries of the universe.

Researchers zoomed in on the objects during a survey of the universe using the ASKA.

After three snaps of the mysterious ORCS were captured they were compared to the existing archive and found to match a similar radio wave structure located in March 2013.

The authors of the study note radio images are normally sphere space objects – like remnants of dying stars as well as proto-planetary discs
These new ORCs by contrast “appear to be a new class of astronomical objects” they said.

Another Repeating Fast Radio Burst in Deep Space Has Been Found

Article by Fox News Channel                            June 12, 2020                         (fox6now.com)

• After finding the first-known repeating fast radio bursts (FRBs) in February (see previous ExoArticle here), researchers have discovered another repeating FRB in deep space that has them baffled. According to a newly published study in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, FRB 121102, which has been observed since 2016 by Britain’s Lovell Telescope, was discovered to have a 157-day repeating pattern. It shows activity for 90 days and then goes silent for 67 days.

• “Using the pulses detected in the Lovell data along with pulses from the literature, we report a detection of periodic behavior of the source over the span of 5 years of data,” according to the study. The deep space source is currently ‘off’, and it should turn ‘on’ again from June 2 to August 28, 2020.

• “This exciting discovery highlights how little we know about the origin of FRBs,” said a co-author of the study, Duncan Lorimer. “Further observations of a larger number of FRBs will be needed in order to obtain a clearer picture about these periodic sources and elucidate their origin.”

• The FBR found in February has a 16-day repeating pattern. It may be repeating due to it orbiting a compact object, for example, a black hole, causing its pattern to repeat, according to the study. It’s also possible that it could be coming from a binary star system, but more research is needed.

• It’s unknown how common FRBs are and why some of them repeat, while others do not. Their origins are also mysterious in nature. Some researchers speculate that FRBs come from an extraterrestrial civilization. But SETI (the ‘Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Institute’) says that because these FRBs come from all over space, “arranging cooperative alien behavior …seems unlikely.”

• The first (non-repeating) FRB was discovered in 2007. Some of them can generate as much energy as 500 million suns in a few milliseconds.

 

NEW YORK — After finding the first-known repeating fast radio bursts (FRBs) in February, researchers have discovered another repeating FRB in deep space that has them baffled.

FRB 121102, which has been observed since 2016 by the Lovell Telescope in the U.K., was discovered to have a 157-day repeating pattern. It shows activity for 90 days and then goes silent for 67 days, according to a newly published study in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

“Using the pulses detected in the Lovell data along with pulses from the literature, we report a detection of periodic behavior of the source over the span of 5 yr of data,” researchers wrote in the study. “We predict that the source is currently ‘off’ and that it should turn ‘on’ for the approximate MJD range 59002−59089 (2020 June 2 to 2020 August 28).”

It’s unclear what’s causing the pattern to repeat, leaving researchers to realize just how little they know about FRBs.

“This exciting discovery highlights how little we know about the origin of FRBs,” said one of the study’s co-authors, Duncan Lorimer, in a statement. “Further observations of a larger number of FRBs will be needed in order to obtain a clearer picture about these periodic sources and elucidate their origin.”

Aliens Could Wipe Us Out With ‘Coded Message’ That Shuts Down Electronics and Unleashes Killer Robots, Astrophysicists Warn

Listen to “E114 10-4-19 Aliens Could Wipe Us Out With ‘Coded Message’ That Shuts Down Electronics and Unleashes Killer Robots, Astrophysicists Warn” on Spreaker.

Article by Harry Pettit                     September 24, 2019                      (thesun.co.uk)

• Research scientists from the University of Hawaii and the Sonneberg Observatory in Germany have published a paper warning that evil extraterrestrials could attack the Earth more efficiently by introducing a computer virus than by blasting us with space weapons: “After all, it is cheaper to send a malicious message to eradicate humans compared to sending battleships,” according to the paper.

• The theory is that aliens would send us a message through our Earth telescopes warning of an existential threat to humanity, perhaps where our Sun is threatened, or there is a pandemic, or our computer systems worldwide are shut down. Then they’d send us an artificial intelligence solution to the problem. Once this AI ‘fix’ is implemented, it will turn on us, ‘chewing up Earth or its inhabitants until there’s nothing left’.

• The scientists’ solution is to be careful opening or decoding messages from extraterrestrials. A type of targeted message might come from what are known as “Fast Radio Bursts” – strings of radio waves detected multiple times on Earth that could be messages from a distant alien race. China’s new state-of-the-art FAST telescope, the largest telescope in the world, is currently looking for these FRBs.

• To avoid disaster, we should “decontaminate” any messages received by aliens, though the researchers say this is next-to-impossible. We may be better off discarding them without ever reading them. Fortunately for us, the chances of us ever meeting – let alone being attacked by – intelligent extraterrestrial life are almost zero.

• David Morrison, Director of Space at NASA-Ames Research Center, recently admitted that contact with aliens is “extremely unlikely”. Morrison predicts any message exchange would come in the form of radio waves sent across galaxies, rather than a physical meeting.

[Editor’s Note]   Let’s see… scientists from universities in America and Germany, along with NASA, are warning people to be very afraid of clever alien attacks on the Earth intended to “eradicate humans”. We should be suspicious of anything that comes from an alien source. It sounds like the Deep State is preparing for extraterrestrial disclosure, and wants everyone to look to them to save the planet.

First of all, multiple advanced extraterrestrial species – both good and evil – have been present on our planet and throughout our solar system for millennia, and they haven’t destroyed us yet. The good ETs are waiting for us to work things out for ourselves to preserve our species’ sovereignty. The evil ETs have been manipulating our society in order to generate the resources that they need for off-planet purposes. They have been doing this at a whole new level since World War II. Until now, humanity has posed no threat to them and we are more useful to them by remaining in a state of mind-controlled incomprehension.

But the Deep State knows that the extraterrestrial presence, and the advanced technologies that we have been prevented from accessing, will soon be disclosed to the public at large. The Deep State elite have been the sole recipients of this alien technology thus far and have used it to create breakaway space programs that only enrich themselves. They want humanity to continue to believe that there are no extraterrestrials out there, but if there were they would destroy the planet. The Deep State uses co-opted institutions such as universities, the government (NASA) and the media to disseminate this negative propaganda.

In reality, the positive faction of humanity that has access to secret space program technology and knowledge, known as the ‘Alliance’, is quickly gaining an advantage over the Deep State faction in order to reveal all of this to the world. The Deep State is pushing hard now to fashion any extraterrestrial contact as dangerous for humanity so that when disclosure comes, the people will be so panicked that they can be easily controlled and persuaded to do what the Deep State tells them to do.

 

Aliens will choose to destroy humanity by “hacking” our planet over blasting us with space weapons.

That’s the bonkers claim made by one group of scientists, who warn a single message sent by ET could wipe out all life on Earth.

That message, loaded with computer viruses, is a more efficient way to attack our planet than a fleet of warships, a team of German and American scientists said.

It could shut down our computer systems or gift us the plans to an alien technology that will eventually turn on us.

“After all, it is cheaper to send a malicious message to eradicate humans compared to sending battleships,” researchers from the University of Hawaii and Sonneberg Observatory in Germany wrote in a paper on their theory.

The team said messages sent by aliens would likely first be picked up by telescopes on Earth.

There are a number of ways they could be used to destroy us.

One would be to suggest the aliens are about to destroy our sun.

Even if it wasn’t true, the resultant chaos on Earth would prove catastrophic for humanity.

Another way would be to introduce an artificial intelligence that takes over or shuts down our computers or electricity grids.

One suggestion from the team is that instructions on how to build nano-robots that are sold as a new miracle cure for cancer could be sent in the message.

These robots may eventually turn on us, chewing up Earth or its inhabitants until there’s nothing left.
