    Default Mysterious radio signals from deep space detected

    https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-46811618

    Intersting read. Didn't that signal take around 3 million years to reach us?

    I wouldn't wait on a date. Probably long expired by now.

    Or here is another twist; what if it's one of our old probes that went thru a worm hole after it was so far out it lost contact with earth?

    Of the possible sources mentioned there (neutron stars etc.) it is rather obvious it emanates from a dead civilation that destroyed its beautiful, rare planet in the name of economic growth, or rather, jobs. I wonder what their word for jobs was? Probably the last one on their lips..."But...we...have...jobs!"

    If we start hearing about a "Nostromo" we're in big trouble.

    That would be a worse case scenario!

    I'm hoping it's the infamous space pirate Captain Harlock

    I have chosen to believe that the signal is just David Bowie letting us know he got there okay and he's doing fine.

    by rights of length, on wikipedia this article would be known as a stub lol


    sigh, bbc, yes science is hard read but jeez, some details


    also, this makes we want to play stellaris again... besides, prly the repeating signals come from mega corps that want to build a trade hub in our system, i hope, there is also a radio signal in stellaris that turns into an endgame crisis 0.o

    That's almost as long as it takes for an average mail delivery!
