(KRON) — Astronomers are looking into a possible sign of alien life.
They say a star around 94 light years from earth is emitting a very strong radio signal.
It was detected by a Russian telescope.
Astronomers are keeping their telescopes on the star in the hopes of learning more.
Researchers say if artificial, the signal could be evidence of a hugely advanced alien civilization.
A Type 2 civilization would be able to harness the entirety of the energy emitted by its star but would need a superstructure to do it.
That’s currently more advanced than our type one civilization here on earth.
