Scientist Says Signal Is From Alien Planet

Strange Signal Comes From Alien Planet, Scientist Says




Fox News is reporting a story about a signal allegedly being received from a planet within a "habitable zone." The Fox News story reports:

"Following the Sept. 29 announcement of the discovery of Gliese 581g, astronomer Ragbir Bhathal, a scientist at the University of Western Sydney, claimed to have detected a suspicious pulse of light nearly two years ago, that came from the same area of the galaxy as the location of Gliese 581g, according to the U.K.'s Daily Mail online."

Though the story may not be all that, as SETI astronomer Frank Drake asked the scientist for data, which the scientist never provided. Another flash in the pan story? Probably...

Mr. Bhathal is the highest ranking member of SETI Australia! Something's wrong.
