Periodically, I find it necessary to update some of the reports. Last week, I mentioned the Chinese had detected a signal, using their Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical radio Telescope know as FAST. At the time, they believed the signal had been sent by aliens. Specifically, they thought the signal came from Kepler 438b, which would be the second planet in the Kepler star system. It is described as a rocky planet, estimated as being one and a half times the size of Earth and is in the Goldilocks Zone, meaning it was warm enough to have liquid water. Kepler 438 is a red dwarf star in the constellation Lyra.The Chinese FAST Radio Telescope.Dan Werthimer, from the University of California at Berkely, who, among others wrote a paper about the discovery said that the signals were radio interference from Earth. It is radio pollution. This sort of thing has happened in the past. Each time the signals have ultimately been identified as natural phenomena or from a terrestrial created sources. The lone exception is the WOW signal detected by the Big Ear Radio Observatory at The Ohio State University on August 15, 1977. It has not been repeated which is one of…
