Australia’s Dr. Benjamin Pope points out that it is the first time radio signals from planets outside our solar system have been picked up. “This could potentially lead to the discovery of planets throughout the galaxy,” Pope says.

The sounds, detected by the world’s most powerful telescope, appear to be from hidden planets. They are possibly generated by a planet’s magnetic fields interacting with the solar wind. The Earth, for example, emits powerful radio waves that cause phenomena like the Northern and Southern Lights. Jupiter’s volcanic moon, Io, also creates a similar aurora effect.
The radio signals were picked up by the Netherlands-based Low-Frequency Array radio telescope. Dr. Joseph Callingham of Leiden University says: “This is a spectacle that has attracted our attention from light years away.”
An even more powerful telescope, due to switch on in 2029, is expected to reveal hundreds more planets. (Related: Alien surveillance? Physicist says alien life forms may have bugged space objects to observe Earth.)
Contacting aliens may not be a good idea
However, American theoretical physicist Michio Kaku has said that contacting alien life is a terrible idea.
“Soon we’ll have the Webb telescope up in orbit and we’ll have thousands of planets to look at, and that’s why I think the chances are quite high that we may make contact with an alien civilization,” said Kaku, referring to the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) that is set to launch on Dec. 18 and will peek into worlds at the far reaches of the universe.
“There are some colleagues of mine that believe we should reach out to them. I think that’s a terrible idea. We all know what happened to Montezuma when he met Cortes in Mexico so many hundreds of years ago.”
As legend has it, Montezuma accidentally ceded the entire Aztec Empire to Cortes, a Spanish conquistador, over a language misunderstanding. Kaku apparently fears that if we send a message such as “we come in peace” when we discover them, the aliens may interpret it to mean “come rule us.”
The Aztec Empire was eventually destroyed by the Spanish so Kaku may have legitimate concerns for the future of humanity. “Now, personally, I think that aliens out there would be friendly but we can’t gamble on it. So I think we will make contact but we should do it very carefully,” says Kaku.
The Hubble Space Telescope is the Earth’s most famous piece of technology to see space, but the JWST is 100 times more powerful and uses infrared scanning technology to see things further away and with greater detail.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is sending the new telescope to the second Sun-Earth Lagrange point (L2) – a special place where the JWST can stay in line with Earth – while it orbits around the sun 1.5 million kilometers (0.93 million miles) away from home. The Hubble, on the other hand, just hung out right above our planet a mere 325 kilometers (202 miles) away.
It can also scan thousands of potentially habitable worlds for signs of life, something Hubble is not designed to do. Once in place, researchers will be able to look at the origins of the universe and search for planets that can support life.
If everything goes according to plan, the JWST will reach its destination, calibrate its sensors and be fully operational by May 2022.
UFO expert thinks aliens are already on Earth
Some think that aliens are already here on Earth. Unidentified flying object (UFO) expert Gary Heseltine believes that contact preparations with aliens should involve wetsuits and submarines.
“UFOs are often seen coming in and out of water so suspect that in our deepest oceans and trenches we may well have alien bases. That sounds crazy but if you think about it we only know 5 percent of ocean, we know more about the surface of the moon or Mars than our own oceans – so that would seem to me why UFOs are seen regularly coming in and out of water,” says Heseltine, vice president of the International Coalition for Extraterrestrial Research (ICER).
ICER is a not-for-profit organization comprised of scientists, academics and leading UFO researchers from 27 countries whose mission is to prepare people for a massive psychological change once contact is made with aliens.
Heseltine has predicted that contact will happen soon, but more likely deep in the ocean than deep in space.
To Heseltine’s point, the Navy captured on camera a UFO entering the ocean off the coast of San Diego in July 2019. The video footage shows a dark spherical object, seen through an infrared camera, flying over the ocean and then vanishing into water. A voice can be heard in the background saying “it splashed” as the object disappears. The leaked footage was released by veteran documentary filmmaker Jeremy Corbell on May 15.
The military calls the UFO seen by Navy personnel as a transmedium vehicle. The Pentagon uses that term to refer to an unidentified craft that moves through multiple mediums, such as air, water or vacuum space.

“Alien bases” may be hiding off the coast of Alaska, researchers say
An organization of civilian volunteers dedicated to the study of
unidentified flying objects (UFOs) has issued a statement based on
decades of studying eyewitness reports. According to Mutual UFO Network,
“alien bases” may be hiding off the coast of Alaska, reports the-sun.com.

Enormous City-Size Comet Racing Towards Earth Grows ‘Devil Horns’ After Massive Eruption
A volcanic comet the size of a mid-sized US city has
violently exploded for the second time in four months as it continues
racing toward the earth. And following the massive eruption, the cloud
of ice and gas sprouted what looked like a pair of gigantic devil horns.
The city-sized comet, named 12P/Pons-Brooks, is a cryovolcanic — or
cold volcano — comet. It has a solid nucleus, with an estimated diameter
of 18.6 miles, and is filled with a mix of ice, dust and gas known as
cryomagma. The nucleus is surrounded by a fuzzy cloud of gas called a
coma, which leaks out of the comet’s interior.
When solar radiation heats the comet’s insides, the pressure builds up
and the comet violently explodes, ejaculating its ice-cold innards into
space through seeping cracks in the nucleus’s shell.
Live Science report:
On Oct. 5, astronomers detected a large outburst from 12P, after the
comet became dozens of times brighter due to the extra light reflecting
from its expanded coma, according to the British Astronomical Association (BAA), which has been closely monitoring the comet
Over the next few days, the comet’s coma expanded further and developed its “peculiar horns,” Spaceweather.com
reported. Some experts joked that the irregular shape of the coma also
makes the comet look like a science fiction spaceship, such as the
Millennium Falcon from Star Wars.
The unusual shape of the comet’s coma is likely due to an irregularity in the shape of 12P’s nucleus, Richard Miles, a BAA astronomer, told Live Science after the comet’s previous eruption.
The outflowing gas is likely being partially obstructed by a notch
sticking out on the nucleus, Miles said. As the gas continues to expand
away from the comet, the irregularity in the coma’s shape becomes more
defined and noticeable, he added.
12P is currently hurtling toward the inner solar system, where it
will be slingshotted around the sun on its highly elliptical 71-year
orbit around our home star — similar to the green comet Nishimura, which
pulled off a near-identical maneuver on Sept. 17.
12P will reach its closest point to Earth on April 21, 2024, when it
may become visible to the naked eye before being catapulted back toward
the outer solar system. It will not return until 2095.
This is the second time 12P has sprouted its horns this year. On July
20, astronomers witnessed the comet blow its top for the first time in
69 years (mainly due to its outbursts being less frequent and harder to
spot during the rest of its orbit). On that occasion, 12P’s coma grew to
around 143,000 miles (230,000 km), which is around 7,000 times wider
than the comet’s nucleus.
It is unclear how large the coma grew during the most recent
eruption, but there are signs the outburst was “twice as intense” as the
previous one, the BAA noted. By now, the coma has likely shrunk back to
near its normal size.
As 12P continues to race toward the sun, there is a high probability
that we will witness several more major eruptions. It is possible that
those eruptions will be even bigger than the most recent one as the
comet soaks up more solar radiation, according to Spaceweather.com.
But 12P is not the only volcanic comet that astronomers are currently
monitoring: 29P/Schwassmann-Wachmann (29P) — the most volatile volcanic
comet in the solar system — has also had several noticeable eruptions
in the last year.
In December 2022, 29P experienced its largest eruption in around 12 years, which sprayed around 1 million tons of cryomagma into space. And in April this year, for the first time ever, scientists accurately predicted one of 29P’s eruptions before it actually happened, thanks to a slight increase in the comet’s brightness in the lead-up to the icy explosion.
