(ORDO NEWS) — Chinese scientists have long tried to find extraterrestrial civilizations and for this they used the most powerful FAST radio telescope. Its diameter is 500 meters.
With the help of modern equipment, it was possible to fix strange signals. This happened when the analysis of the telescope data collected back in 2019 was carried out.
The huge telescope is located in the southwestern part of China. It is usually used to study distant galaxies in more detail. In addition, the equipment allows solving numerous problems regarding space exploration.
The main task in this case remains the search for signals that can be sent by potential extraterrestrial intelligence.
The FAST telescope resembles the one at the Arecibo Observatory that was destroyed. At the same time, a modern device has a higher sensitivity indicator and can cover a larger area of outer space.
“There is a very high probability that we have finally been able to fix a signal from aliens.
At the same time, the radio signal may be just a hindrance.
Additional research will be required in the near future to either officially confirm or disprove the assumption of a signal transmission by an intelligent alien civilization, ”says Zhang Tongjie from the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
Most Western experts are convinced that it is too early to think that the recorded signals can be transmitted by aliens.
To do this, it is necessary not only to study these signals in more detail, but also to make an expert assessment. Many scientists believe that previously recorded signals can have a fairly simple explanation.
Chinese experts, in turn, very much hope that they will still be able to officially confirm their assumption, which can completely change the world.
In the event that it is not possible to confirm the theory of a signal from aliens, then the search will continue further. It is worth paying attention to the fact that a more detailed study may take a lot of time.
