Did the Chinese FAST Telescope detect alien intelligence?

China's FAST: Dish-shaped radio telescope.
FAST – the world’s largest dish-type radio telescope – launched a program to search for alien intelligence in 2020. This year, we detected a “suspicious” signal while observing an exoplanet. Image by Ou Dongqu / Xinhua / ZUMA / Nature.

China’s high-speed telescope: the world’s largest radio telescope

On Twitter this afternoon (June 14, 2022), we’ll be chatting about some new artificial signals detected by China’s 500-meter high-speed radio telescope. There is an implication that these may be cues from alien civilization. Global Times (@globaltimesnews) – Described itself as “Chinese state media” – was one source of information that reported this story. There is no confirmation of this story at this time. Chinese scientists also point out that suspicious signals can be some sort of radio interference.

FAST is the world’s largest and most sensitive radio telescope. Since 2020, we have been working on a program to find alien life. According to an article published today (June 14th) on Chinese news source YiCai:

… The team discovered two groups of signals from space in 2020 while processing the data observed by FAST in 2019. This year, we discovered another suspicious signal from observations of exoplanets.

Andrew Jones (@AJ_FI On Twitter), he describes himself as a “journalist tracking China’s space program.”

Jones explained on Twitter that he got his information from this Chinese source. This is a Chinese tweet (translated by Google Translate):

“China Sky Eye” in search of extraterrestrial civilization [FAST telescope] Suspicious signal found

After starting the exploration of extraterrestrial civilization, “China Sky Eye” [FAST] We have made significant progress. A few days ago, Professor Zhang Yu Jie, chief scientist of the China Extraterrestrial Civilization Research Group at the Faculty of Astronomy, Beijing Ordinary University, discovered some possible cases of his team using “China’s Skyeye.” Revealed technical traces from outside the earth and civilization outside the earth. Candidate signal. Zhang Tongjie states that these are some narrowband electromagnetic signals that are different from the past, and the team is currently working on further investigation. “The search for China Sky Eye has been long and we have been working hard.”

Note that Zhang Tongjie also states:

It is very likely that the suspicious signal is some kind of radio interference and should be further checked or excluded. This can be a long process.

Conclusion: Today (June 14, 2022) China reports on some new possible artificial signals (probably signs of alien intelligence) detected by China’s FAST radio telescope.
