Have We Made First Contact? The Signal from HD 164595 Could Be Intelligent Life

HD 164595 Signal – Could we have heard from extraterrestrial alien life for the first time?

This isn’t a Hollywood movie.

This is real.

“An international team of researchers has announced the detection of “a strong signal in the direction of HD164595” in a document now being circulated through contact person Alexander Panov,” wrote Paul Gilster on the blog Centauri Dreams.

“The detection was made with the RATAN-600 radio telescope in Zelenchukskaya, in the Karachay–Cherkess Republic of Russia, not far from the border with Georgia in the Caucasus,” he wrote.

The reaction has been huge.

“We’re not saying its Aliens, but…” SETI Tweeted, August 30, 2016.

The possibly “artificial” signal from HD 164595 travelled some 94-light-years to reach Earth – and is the most exciting find since the famous ‘WOW Signal’ of August 1977.

The mystery radio waves were observed for about two-seconds by a small team at the facility at RATAN-600 in May 2015.

Now SETI Scientists, researchers are space nerds everywhere are in a frenzy of excitement.

“The signal from HD 164595 is intriguing, because it comes from the vicinity of a sun-like star, and if it’s artificial, its strength is great enough that it was clearly made by a civilization with capabilities beyond those of humankind,” astronomer Douglas Vakoch, president of METI International, told CNN.

Now, major telescopes and signal detection facilities are trained on HD 164595, including the Allen Telescope Array in California and the Boquete Optical SETI Observatory in Panama.

The signal is strong and if proven to be artificially created – rather than one of the naturally and frequently heard cosmic sounds of the Universe – it would likely be from an advanced intelligent life far greater than our own.

So is it aliens?

Possibly but we have to see the signal again and again to know for sure.

“The greatest limitation of the May 2015 signal is that it hasn’t been replicated. Before we can give any credence to a signal as coming from extraterrestrials, we need to see it repeatedly to make sure it wasn’t just a transient phenomenon,” Douglas Vakoch said.

“It deserves at least a few hours of observing time by SETI researchers at other locations to make sure we don’t miss an opportunity to make first contact, however remote.”

The detection will be discussed by Scientist – including those who were part of the team in Russia, at a meeting of the IAA SETI Permanent Committee, to be held during the 67th International Astronautical Congress (IAC) in Guadalajara, Mexico, on Tuesday, September 27th, 2016, Paul Gilster reported.

The meeting is likely to be of great interest to the world’s media.

With more telescopes trained on HD 164595, we hope to hear more news.

For now, we wait to hear.

The site of a possible extraterrestrial radio transmission is detected, in Zelenchukskaya, Russia.
