Examining unusual fluctuations of the illumination of the 234 stars, canadian scientists Ermanno Borra and Eric Trott of the University of Laval in Quebec came to the conclusion that they may be evidence of the existence near these stars alien super-civilizations. According to scientists, previously, it was predicted that aliens may be trying to draw attention to themselves in this way.
The researchers analyzed data from about 2.5 million stars located in the milky way that had previously been collected in the preparation Kaunasskogo digital Atlas of the sky. For more than two hundred of them were typical unusual fluctuations glow. According to the astrophysicists, in the past, many experts had predicted that a hypothetical alien civilization could use such fluctuations in order to draw attention to themselves. It is assumed that this goal sufficiently technologically advanced aliens would temporarily “add” the brightness of their stars and a special way to change their range. Detected signals have exactly the same form that was predicted by the supporters of such theories, the researchers said.
Experts acknowledge that their findings are only conjecture, requiring many additional checks. Reacted with disbelief to her and in one of the most reputable organizations seriously engaged in the search for the brothers on reason — the Institute of search for extraterrestrial intelligence SETI. One of the leading experts of this organization, Seth Shostak, said that 234 of the alien organization is unlikely to have simultaneously announced their existence in the same way (as far as the word “simultaneously” at all applicable to the stars, the light from many of them flew to the Ground tens of thousands of years and now allows to see only their distant past). However, SETI is planning to independently verify the findings of astrophysicists before giving them a final assessment.
On their findings, the scientists reported in the journal Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific.
