Passion on the constellation Hercules

50
A lot of noise in the scientific and near-scientific community was made by the information that Russian astrophysics from the observatory in Nizhny Arkhyz recorded an unusual signal that came from the star system HD164595 of the constellation Hercules. Western astronomers, after studying the characteristics of the signal, came to their own conclusion that it could be a question of fixing the signal of “extraterrestrial civilizations”. In particular, this version is right there опубликовал amateur astronomer Paul Gilster.

Passion on the constellation Hercules




The fact that Russian astrophysicists recorded a signal from the constellation Hercules back in May with the help of the RATAN-600 telescope attracted attention. Its uniqueness is that it is about 10 times as intense as the intensity of the average pulsar and even the Moon, which is “only” (according to astronomical measures) in 384 thousand km from Earth.

All this time, Russian astrophysicists have been waiting for the signal to repeat, but the expectations were in vain. In the end, they decided to send information about receiving a signal to other astrophysical laboratories for review and possible analysis.

For reference: the HD164595 star is similar to the Sun and is at a distance 95 light years from Earth. Exoplanet is drawn around her at intervals of about 40 days, which is classified as "Hot Neptune." The mass of exoplanets is 16 times the mass of the Earth.

IA TASS quotes a statement by the researcher at the Special Astrophysical Observatory of the Russian Academy of Sciences Julia Sotnikova:
In the past and this year, the telescope is working on finding sun-shaped stars. Scientific results in this study yet. Some time ago - in the spring of this year - an unusual signal was received, but its processing showed that, most likely, it is a hindrance of terrestrial origin.


The RAS additionally reported that “unusual signals” were recorded in Soviet times, but after expert analysis it turned out that these were “games” of the Earth’s atmosphere, the effect of which on telescopes located on the surface of the planet is enormous.

A statement from the observatory in Nizhny Arkhyz says that an official refutation of conspiracy statements by Western amateur astronomers is being prepared that the signal is "a sign from an alien civilization." Here are just the real conspiracy theorists will not stop ...

        Judging by the fact that they started already in Russia24 about this tryndet, the news is worthless. In any case, we have nothing to do with this. Will be the next in the list mentioned after the signal Wow, and that's all.
        Why are aliens so unreasonable. It is logical that it was possible to attract attention with the first signal, and after some time (when all eyes and ears will be directed at them) send the second.

        I’m generally writing something. I really want to stand up for REN TV wassat laughing
        But seriously, most of the latest discoveries in the field of physics, astrophysics, etc. either practically predict, or indirectly prove the existence of most of the phenomena from REN TV broadcasts. I just think in REN TV they don’t know this, I strongly doubt that they have knowledge of the issue at the level of leading world physicists and mathematicians of the last century of all mankind. How it turns out is a mystery to me. Apparently a coincidence. laughing

        In general, if you delve a little into this topic, then ...
        If a real base will be gathered in quantum physics (rather than blind tapping into this subject rather now), then practically all fantasies from the cinema can be embodied in reality and humanity will make a tremendous leap, the results of which are hard to imagine. Well, for example, teleportation, cloning, travel to other galaxies (universes?), Possibly parallel worlds, a significant increase in life, up to immortality and much more, could theoretically be possible. This is real, if in physics it will be possible to collect and increase our knowledge. There are still small breakthroughs, but systematization in the field of quantum physics (thanks to the emergence of which at the beginning of the 20th century we have our modern world, almost all the achievements of science and technology now, either completely or partially) is still far away. Although scientists carried out quantum teleportation five years ago, many recent discoveries actually sound even tougher than REN TV broadcasts.

      morality and technology can develop according to a completely different scenario, recall Hitler Germany. The fact that highly developed civilizations are highly moral is just a thesis of Soviet scientists, not justified by anything. If we are being watched, then contact will not take place until it falls into the category of rational behavior. We do not know the criteria.

          RATAN 600. RATAN stands for Radio Astronomical Telescope of the Academy of Sciences. It is located near the village of Zelenchukskaya in the Caucasus mountains in the Russian Federation and is considered the world's largest radio telescope. RATAN 600 is located at an altitude of 970 meters above sea level. Unlike most radio telescopes that use apertures to collect electromagnetic radiation at the receiver, a ring of reflective elements is used here. They are mobile and able to concentrate radiation at any necessary point. The ring is 576 meters in diameter and this is enough to assign the status of the world's largest radio telescope. RATAN 600 was built in 1968 and began its work in 1974.

          I read an article somewhere with the following meaning:
          to determine how and where to look for alien signals, you need to look at how our civilization radiates and will radiate in the radio range.
          And it will look like this: a weak, weak background from all kinds of radio broadcasts (radio, tv, cell phones ...) and strong directional pulses from radars.

          So most likely we are catching them.

    This is not the first time. This spring, there was information that British astrophysicists also recorded a signal several years ago (not from our area (c), sorry not from the constellation Hercules). But we have not yet received a second signal, as in our case.

    Highly developed civilizations DO NOT USE radio, because it takes a very long time to wait for an answer. Their communication systems are based on completely different principles, the same sub-dimensional communication. So if there is a civilization in this system, then, most likely, of our level or slightly higher, but also "technical barbarians".

    Apparently you have a very extensive experience in contacts with highly developed alien civilizations, since you know that they do not use radio, but use just subspace communication.
    And yet, in the article somewhere it is written that a signal has been received from a highly developed civilization? I probably missed it. As for the level at which they are - it's all relative. Compared to tribes elsewhere in Oceania, we are at a very high level of development. We've been using radio for almost half a century. And if we use it for another three hundred years, do you think our civilization will still be "barbaric"?
    It’s very early to talk about it, but as Sergei Ivanovich correctly said

      Share necessarily. They don’t get into this sphere of politics - they are not interested (and thank God), but the capabilities of the equipment may differ, so those who receive the recording will be limited by the capabilities of the one who received this signal.
      If technical cooperation were broader, then its results would be more interesting.

    RATAN 600 is the world's largest radio telescope. It is located at an altitude of 970 meters above sea level. The first launch took place in 1974. The name stands for "Radio Astronomy Telescope of the Academy of Sciences." 600 in the name means the diameter of the ring.
    The RATAN-600 radio telescope is designed to: detect a large number of cosmic sources of radio emission, identify them with space objects, study the radio emission of stars, study the bodies of the solar system, study areas of increased radio emission in the sun to study their structure and, in particular, the structure of their magnetic fields, detection of signals of artificial origin (extraterrestrial civilizations), etc. The radio telescope consists of: two main reflectors: circular and flat, and five movable observation booths moving along rail tracks. The circular reflector is a metal structure consisting of 895 identical, independent movable reflecting elements 7.4 meters high and 2 meters wide with a precise cylindrical central part 5 meters high, the radius of curvature of the reflector is 290 m. Currently, the height of the shields of a circular reflector, taking into account additional panels (flaps) is 11.4 m. Reflecting elements are mounted on a rigid foundation and have three degrees of freedom: rotation around the vertical axis by + -6 degrees, rotation around the horizontal axis by 53 degrees. from vertical, radial movement of 1 meter. The flat reflector (periscope mirror) has a total length of 400 meters and consists of 124 separate flat elements 8.5 m high, mounted on the low pedestals of the strip foundation. Elements allow rotation of 70 degrees. from a vertical relative to a horizontal axis located near ground level. In addition, the reflector in some cases of observation can be removed, laid on the ground. The internal space of the antenna is divided by radial rail tracks. The paths are designed to move five receiving cabins and are directed radially from the center of the antenna at an angle of 30 degrees. The radial road is crossed by a ring rail passing in front of the antenna shields. The ring road and rail tracks on it are designed for the passage of cranes carrying out installation and dismantling work on the antenna, and cars. Receiving cabins are mounted on self-propelled carts for movement along ring and rail tracks. To move the cabin from one path to another, a turntable is provided located in the geometric center of the telescope.
