    Like David Essex sang back in 78, "The chances of anything coming from Mars, are a Million to one!", I'm open to there possibly being something out there though.

    I was half expecting to read about speculation as to the existence of intelligent extraterrestial life in this article, but was glad to see that no reference was made to this, because radio bursts do not automatically mean that extraterrestial life exists.

    Intelligent life in Space? In some cases it takes a bit of work to find intelligent life on THIS Planet! :D

    I dunno! But the possibility that these bursts are from exploding Death Stars shouldn't be excluded. We know of at least two already!

    A fascinating article and then I went to the next article and there's an amazing Hubble picture of deep space showing different types of galaxies really clearly, such immensity...
