Liputan6.com, Jakarta – Alien hunters have uncovered a mysterious signal thought to have come from Earth’s closest exoplanet, Proxima Centauri.
Earlier, in 2020, astronomers and observers of extraterrestrial phenomena at Breakthrough Listen reported an interesting signal was picked up when they pointed the Parkes telescope at Proxima Centauri, the closest exoplanet to Earth. The Parkes Telescope is in Australia.
But lately, what previously seemed like a presumed signal from Proxima Centauri may just be an echo from Earth.
Astronomers who dedicate themselves to looking for signs alien in outer space (known as technosignature) said one clue that was deemed promising was likely fake.
“Evidence suggests that the signal is interference from human technology, although we were unable to identify the specific source,” Sofia Sheikh, a member of the Breakthrough Listen astronomy team, said in a statement. Cnet, Wednesday (27/10/2021).
The Breakthrough Listen initiative helps support the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (alien-like creatures).
