Sloan Digital Sky Survey

Discovery of peculiar periodic spectral modulations in a small fraction of solar type stars

A Fourier transform analysis of 2.5 million spectra in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey was carried out to detect periodic spectral modulations. Signals having the same period were found in only 234 stars overwhelmingly in the F2 to K1 spectral range. The signals cannot be caused by instrumental or data analysis effects because they are present in only a very small fraction of stars within a narrow spectral range and because signal to noise ratio considerations predict that the signal should mostly be detected in the brightest objects, while this is not the case. We consider several possibilities, such as rotational transitions in molecules, rapid pulsations, Fourier transform of spectral lines and signals generated by Extraterrestrial Intelligence (ETI). They cannot be generated by molecules or rapid pulsations. It is highly unlikely that they come from the Fourier transform of spectral lines because too many strong lines located at nearly periodic frequencies are needed. Finally we consider the possibility, predicted in a previous published paper, that the signals are caused by light pulses generated by Extraterrestrial Intelligence to makes us aware of their existence. We find that the detected signals have exactly the shape of an ETI signal predicted in the previous publication and are therefore in agreement with this hypothesis. The fact that they are only found in a very small fraction of stars within a narrow spectral range centered near the spectral type of the sun is also in agreement with the ETI hypothesis. However, at this stage, this hypothesis needs to be confirmed with further work. Although unlikely, there is also a possibility that the signals are due to highly peculiar chemical compositions in a small fraction of galactic halo stars.

    Nice work paying attention to this.

    I have followed this up a bit. Borra said that verifying the data will take some time.

    The original study for Sloan Digital Sky data to be analyzed this way appears in his 2012 paper. This paper specifically notes the stars in question, which leads me to believe that such verification is easier to preform and as such would take less time than what appears to be a maximum of 4 years.

    Originally, SETI/Breaktrough was quoted as saying they would follow it up, that their equipment was ideal to verify the data.

    While Borra has discussed this with me, SETI/Breakthrough has not. After a few attempts to get a response, I gave up bothering.

    As a result, I don’t trust anything SETI has to say for now and certainly don’t expect them to disclose data in the best interest of life in general. I expect quite the opposite from them.

    If confirmed as multiple ET broadcasts, I predict each and every broadcast will uphold a, “Most Important Truth”, as it’s main message and that to comprehend the full broadcast of each message it will require using the “Most Important Truth” as a key.

    This Most Important Truth will be expressed as, Life is Most Important in Life.
    That they will each, every single one, be stating that truth first while giving praise to a True Living God.

    This is, very possibly, one of the greatest discoveries ever. Yet, it has barely seen the light of day in the media since it’s first reporting.

  2. Your faith notwithstanding, but your religious beliefs do not constitute the greatest truth ever revealed. They are just your beliefs. The universe is likely teeming with life. All types of life and all types of science and religion as well.

    Well, if I have it wrong, just respond without ever using life to prove something is more important.
