The Hollywood variety are known to be chatty, and it turns out that the interstellar variety are as well.
Stars are ‘talking’ to each other, according to research performed by leading Astronomer Franz Keg at Munich ASL Observatory.
“It has taken over a decade, for the delay of communication is still governed by the speed of light. We have recorded a conversation between our star and one of the nearest, Barnard’s Star,” he says, “It is still up for analysis whether there is a proper grammar and structure.”
The report says that the ‘hot topic’ is a supernova that happened 150 years ago – yesterday in solar terms. Flares, sun spots, and strong magnetic fields send out an enormously complex signal that is being received, in a decade or so, by other stars.
“While we have only discovered three parts of a conversation, we expect there to be more as the years go on and our research continues. Alpha Centauri was has been too complicated, as the triple system is too noisy, much like a gaggle of geese,” he says, “As the Earth travels through the solar wind, it is like sitting on the telephone wire, listening in to the gossip.”
