A “coherent” radio signal has been detected from an alien planet, suggesting it could be more likely to be habitable.
The signal suggests that the planet has its own magnetic field, which is thought to be central to sustaining life on a particular world.
On Earth, our magnetic field helps protect us from the high energy particles and plasma that are blasted from the Sun. As such, any alien life is likely to depend on being protected by a similar field.
But until now researchers have struggled to confirm whether distant rocky planets have magnetic fields of their own, and therefore have found it difficult to say how likely a planet might be to able to support life.
Now the new candidate – YZ Ceti b, a rocky planet that orbits a star about 12 light years away – has sent a repeating radio signal that comes from the star and seems to be affected by the planet.

OK — so the “coherent” signal is from the star, not the planet. Why can’t folks write accurate headlines these days?
I was really hoping the alien invasion was imminent.
Hope? or fear? Maybe there is life there but it is hostile and about to find out that we are here.

Here we go again. Show us something more than sound waves on a monitor.
Have an alien sit down and “talk” with Tucker or Gayle on CBS.
Hopefully the Alien doesn’t ask for us to take him to our leader.

Here comes the fake alien invasion the deepstate/deepchurch will stage to distract us and try to keep their ever shrinking power.
It’s so predictable! Once Trump indictment circus is over this could be the next one.
Let’s broadcast back Brandon speaking. Then the aliens will think there is no coherent signal and thus no life on Earth.
