Scientists from the University of Puerto Rico announced the establishment of the source of a mysterious signal discovered last week in the constellation Virgo. A strange signal has forced researchers to break your head: at first, nothing more than the activities of aliens, do not fall under the possible scenario.
The discoverer of the signal Professor Abel Mendez last week reported the discovery of a potential competitor “signal Wow!” which fixed for a small star GJ 447 in the constellation Virgo. Since scientists strongly researched “activity” red dwarf, including using a 300-meter radio telescope “Arecibo”. And originally obtained data allow to state that the signal really exists.
However, the reality is, as always, was prosaic. It turned out that GJ 447 is at the point in the sky, through which many of the orbit of geostationary satellites, emitting radiation at the same frequencies, which was discovered a mysterious signal. In this regard, the researchers concluded that, most likely, the “alien signal” was generated by a man-made space object, located somewhere nearby.
However, there is still hope. Astrophysicists observe the star, as derived from its area, the signal is still somewhat different from the one that you can catch from earth satellites.
