Many of us look into the stars at night and wonder if other life exists. Now scientists claim that extraterrestrial lifeforms are possibly trying to communicate with humans from deep space.
Analysis shows strange modulations located in a tiny set of stars appearing to indicate that alien lifeforms are trying to communicate with earth.

New studies have reported the finding of certain modulations in the galaxy that scientists find intriguing and have them discussing what the modulations might be. It seems a tiny fraction of the stars within a certain area have been behaving mysteriously.
Scientists are seemingly stumped as to what could possibly be causing this strange behavior. With no explanation to explain what they are finding, immediately thoughts go to alien life. Scientists claim this time it might actually be aliens trying to contact the human race. Sort of…
Two scientist EF Borra and E Trottier submitted a study and have claimed, “We find that the detected signals have exactly the shape of an [extraterrestrial intelligence] signal predicted in the previous publication and are therefore in agreement with this hypothesis.”
The two scientists from Laval University in Quebec added,“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.”
The research publication tmade it clear such an extraordinary claim will obviously need substantial evidence to back it up.
Stephen Hawking and Mark Zuckerberg have supported the belief that there is life on other planets than earth. They both chimed in on the discovery, saying that the message was promising. But they did agree with the publicist that further work will have to be done before they can be “unequivocally attributed” to extraterrestrial lifeforms.
“The one in 10,000 objects with unusual spectra seen by Borra and Trottier are certainly worthy of additional study,” the team investigating theirs allegations said in a statement. “However, extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.”
They added,“Careful work must be undertaken to determine false positive rates, to rule out natural and instrumental explanations, and most importantly, to confirm detections using two or more independent telescopes.”
If there is anything to take away from this striking astronomy news, it’s that with advancements in technology, we now stand a greater chance of answering that age-old question: Is anyone else out there?
