Many experts have found that something strange is happening at the closest star to the sun. Scientists have discovered that an inexplicable radio signal is coming from Proxima Centauri. The radio signal is too faint to be seen from the earth by naked eyes, said the experts. Although it is a too dim radio signal to be visible from the earth, however, it is a cosmic stone, which has been thrown away at only 4.2 light-years away. Experts have said that the newly discovered radio signal has emerged this fall. It appears to be coming from the direction of Proxima Centauri. Experts have not dismissed the signal as interference to earth as of now. Scientists who have been involved in the new project have said that detecting a mysterious signal coming from a nearby star has many enticing prospects; however, there are many tasks, which need to be done.
The senior author Andrew Siemion from the University of California, Berkeley, who has been observing this strange radio signal has said that the signal consists of properties, which have allowed it to pass several checks so far. He has not been able to explain this process yet. Astronomers have said that they have been able to identify a curious aspect of this signal. They have found that the signal dwells in an extremely slim radio spectrum of 982 megahertz. As per the experts, this narrow spectral range usually has no transmissions from human-made satellites and spacecraft. Astronomers have said that they are not aware of any natural way to squeeze electromagnetic energy into a single band frequency.
Andrew Siemion has said that some unusual work of plasma physics might be responsible for this kind of radio signal. He has claimed that as of now, there is only a technological source available, which is known for such a signal. As per the report, this signal has been identified by a project called Breakthrough Listen. This project has been led by Andrew Siemion and has been funded by tech billionaire Yuri Milner. The project aims to buy time on radio telescopes around the world and looks for evidence of technological civilizations in the enormity of the universe.
