Scientists have received radio signals from what they believe to be an alien civilisation located somewhere between Pisces and Aries.
Scientists from SETI, the worldwide project for Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence claim to have detected what they believe to be the first radio signal from an alien civilisation.
The report to be published in the science journal New Scientist states that the faint pulse, detected by the world’s biggest single-dish telescope, the Arecibo radio telescope, in Puerto Rico originated from a planet located somewhere between the two constellations Pisces and Aries.
Scientists have ruled out the possibility of the signal as interference from Earth, satellites or other cosmic sounds.
