Discovery of pulsars
British astronomer Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell discovered a pulsar in 1967 and was the first person to discover a pulsar.
Since then, other types of pulsars that emit X-rays and gamma rays have also been discovered.
Pulsars are essentially rotating, highly tortuous neutron stars, but when they were first discovered, it was believed that they might have come from aliens.
‘Wow! ‘Radio signal
In 1977, when an astronomer was looking for extraterrestrial life over Ohio, he discovered a powerful radio signal that he wrote “Wow!”

The 72-second explosion discovered by Dr. Jerry Ehman through a radio telescope came from Sagittarius, but no known celestial bodies were found.
Since then, conspiracy theorists have claimed that the “wow! signal” is 30 times stronger than background radiation and is information from intelligent Earth aliens.
Rigid Martian Microbe
In 1996, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (Nasa) and the White House (White House) explosively announced that the rocks contained traces of Martian bugs.
The meteorite, classified as Allen Hills (ALH) 84001, crashed on Antarctic frozen waste 13,000 years ago and was recovered in 1984.
The released photo shows the elongated segmented object, which looks lifelike.

However, the excitement did not last long. Other scientists questioned whether the meteorite samples were contaminated.
They also believe that the heat generated when the rock exploded into space may have created a mineral structure that could be mistaken for microfossils.
Tabby star behavior in 2005
This star, also known as KIC 8462852, is located 1,400 light years away and has been plagued by astronomers since it was discovered in 2015.
It darkens much faster than other stars, and some experts believe that this is a sign that aliens are using star energy.

Recent research “eliminates the possibility of extraterrestrial giant structures”, on the contrary, it suggests that dust rings may cause strange signals.
Exoplanets in the Goldilocks zone in 2015
In February of this year, astronomers announced that they had discovered a star system whose planets could support life only 39 light years away.
Seven Earth-like planets were discovered on the nearby dwarf star “Trappist-1”. All of them may have water on their surfaces, which is one of the key components of life.
Three of these planets have such good conditions that scientists say that life may have evolved on them.
Researchers claim that they will know whether life will exist on any planet within ten years, and say “this is just the beginning.”
