Welp, It’s Here: Scientists Think They Have Received A Message From Aliens


If you don’t believe in aliens, I’m willing to bet you’re a Donald Trump supporter. Just a feeling I have. Anyway, aliens are real AF and it’s only a matter of time before they take a nice squat over Earth and shit all over us.  Well, apparently we may be closer than ever. Determined to not let the Presidential Election be the only thing scaring the crap out of us, scientists out of Canada say they more or less have received messages from aliens.

Via The Independent:

A new analysis of strange modulations in a tiny set of stars appears to indicate that it could be coming from extraterrestrial intelligence that is looking to alert us to their existence.

The new study reports the finding of specific modulations in just 234 out of the 2.5 million stars that have been observed during a survey of the sky. The work found that a tiny fraction of them seemed to be behaving strangely.

EF Borra and E Trottier, two scientists from Laval University in Quebec, wrote:

“We find that the detected signals have exactly the shape of an [extraterrestrial intelligence] signal predicted in the previous publication and are therefore in agreement with this hypothesis. The fact that they are only found in a very small fraction of stars within a narrow spectral range centered near the spectral type of the sun is also in agreement with the ETI hypothesis.”

And now, an obligatory alien guy meme:
