Recent discovery by Russian scientists detected a signal from a planet dubbed HB164595. The signal is unusual in a cosmic sense and it deserves more study, all of the scientists say.
The big question is if the signal is natural or “artificial.” If it’s natural, no big deal just a bright light in the sky. But, if it’s artificial then some other life form created it. The big zinger here is the level of technology that is required to make a signal that strong. Using the Kardashev scale the civilization would be level II. That is a BIG deal, a level II civilization has harnessed ALL of the energy of their sun. Think about that for a moment, ALL of the energy of the sun. To do that would require something like a Dyson Sphere.
All this begs the question, why would they call us? Also, given the fact that the planet is 94 light years from Earth. With that distance, they haven’t received our first radio transmissions yet, so the chance of them ‘answering the call’ is slim.
No one is packing their bags yet for a visit, but the scientists are trying to find out if anyone is home. It might turn out to be some natural lensing, or other phenomena, but hey, the fun in is the investigation.
