Researchers believe that they may have found the first evidence of alien life after discovering a signal from a star 11 light-years from Earth.
The signal is coming from a red dwarf star known as Ross 128 which is 2,800 times dimmer than the sun and is not known to have any planet around it, adding more to the mystery.
University of Puerto Rico astrobiologist Abel Mendez said that the star was observed for 10 minutes using the Arecibo Observatory – a massive radio telescope in a sink hole in Puerto Rico.
Mr Mendez said that the signal was “almost periodic”, and although it is unlikely that it originates from alien beings, it cannot be ruled out.
