    Also, I'm just going to say this, but those radio signals are older than all of us.

    So are they similar to this thing?



    I remember reading about it a while ago. It would be cool if we could actually locate the source and see what's actually sending them, but I won't hold my breath.

    Which makes me think that the chances of the alien population that sent out those signals is already long gone are very high.

    Those Aliens already died anyway, unless they're immortal.

    Not really what they're claiming, could be any of numerous natural occurrences in the universe. They said they've observed signals from there on 6 occasions but only had a repeating signal once. Basically, if this signal was created by intelligent life, it's unlikely the signal was intended for us, we could just be intercepting their version of radio or television. If the signal was intended to find other life, it's traveled too far to be useful for any mortal life unless they have a better grasp of physics than we do and have figured out a way to exceed light speed. Regardless, definitely nothing to be too interested in as far as I'm concerned.

    @Owl

    The thread title should match the article title.

    If there was solid evidence of aliens it would have appeared on Reuters, AP, AFP, and Bloomberg, not in the fucking Independent. :notrust

    Blue whales can live for 200 years. We shouldn't assume that a human lifespan is the maximum lifespan.

    it doesn't need to be, we're talking about planetary lifetimes. What i mean by that is, even planets don't maintain their environments for that long.

    That's true, but they could also have moved to a different planet.

    (Possibly between sending the signal and now)

    Let’s just say that we decided to respond to them with our own signals, and it turns out they were actually aliens. It’d take another long time to get their next message. By the time their next response to ours our solar system would’ve been swallowed by the sun already.
