BREAKING: China claims its 'Sky Eye' telescope may have received signals from alien civilizations

China claimed that its massive Sky Eye telescope may have detected signals from extraterrestrial civilizations, according to a report by the state-backed Science and Technology Daily, which quickly removed the article and related posts.

The report quotes Zhang Tonjie, chief scientist of a search team for extraterrestrial civilizations co-founded by Beijing Normal University, the National Astronomical Observatory of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the University of California at Berkeley, as saying that electromagnetic signals from narrow bands detected by Sky Eye, the world's largest radio telescope, differ from those captured in the past and the team is investigating them further.

It is unclear why the report was apparently removed from the website of Science and Technology Daily, the official newspaper of China's Ministry of Science and Technology, even though the news was already trending on social media site Weibo and had been picked up by other media. media, including state media.

Sky Eye, which is located in the Guizhou region of southwestern China and has a diameter of 500 meters (1,640 feet), began an official search for extraterrestrial life in September 2020. Zhang, according to the newspaper, said the team noticed two sets of suspicious signals in 2020 while processing data acquired in 2019, and another suspicious signal in 2022 from planetary target observation data.

According to Zhang, China's Sky Eye is particularly sensitive to the low-frequency radio band and plays a crucial role in the search for extraterrestrial civilizations. He said the strange signals could possibly be radio interference and would need further analysis.This is a developing story and we will keep you updated as soon as new information regarding this story emerges.
