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:
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 ...
