A new study seems to think alien signals could be emitting from the heart of the Milky Way, attempting to make contact with humankind. This study focuses on data collected by a pioneering mission called Breakthrough Listen Investigation for Periodic Spectral Signals, which searches for patterns of repeated signals that may be the key to unlocking extraterrestrial connections in our galaxy.
BLIPSS is a collaborative effort between the SETI Institute, Breakthrough Listen, and Cornell University. The researchers used BLIPSS to focus on the central region of the Milky Way, where a dense grouping of stars and even possibly habitable exoplanets are located. The team claims that BLIPSS increases the chances of capturing alien signals in space.
By paying attention to these potentially habitable regions, researchers were hoping to get a glimpse at something. It appears that they have. According to researchers, BLIPSS allows them to search for repeating signals that could represent alien signals trying to communicate with other life forms in the universe.
Of course, scientists have always discussed the possibility of alien life existing somewhere out there, so it isn’t entirely unplausible for some kind of communication attempts to exist. It’s not clear if the system is going to be successful. It is a new and promising way of searching for life in our galaxy.
The new study was conducted by a team led by Akshay Suresh, a graduate student at Cornell University. The study is published in the Astronomical Journal. It will be intriguing to see if it turns up any evidence of alien signals in space, especially following recent whistleblowers claiming the US government already has evidence of alien vehicles.
