The very first sentence of this article shows it up for the foolish thing that it is ... " Scientists have detected radio signals from beyond the solar system for the first time ...". Huh? We have radio telescopes that constantly receive radio signals from objects all over the known universe, constantly. And "Sagittarius A" happens to be a very active radio emitting source near the center of our galaxy, so why wouldn't we get a signal from there?

Yes, it was another attempt on my part to show how the media is again pushing the alien agenda on us and getting the idea of life elsewhere into our consciousness.

As for your critique Snowy - yeah, you have a point - but, reading it again, it does come from the English version of a Russian site so we have to accept that the odd word may have been lost in translation - maybe they meant " .. have detected un-natural radio signals from beyond the solar system for the first time "

But the point of my post was really what Pollen said : again, another story in the media making "Aliens Exist" acceptable in the human mind.

Points taken.

Certain levels of media have a vested interest in promoting stories like this because they appeal to people's sense of mystery and so bring in extra revenue for them. I personally think that it is all about the money.
