New signal from ET not the only one - Laser signal from Gliese 581g in 2008

Depiction of an habitable exo-planet, by SW.

The recent lazer signal received by SETI is not the first of it's kind. Now known as "Ragbir Bhathal Gliese Alien Signal", in December, 2008 a lazer signal was discovered by Australian OSETI astrophysicist and award winning author, Dr. Ragbir Bhathal of the University of Western Sidney.

In this clip from the documentary "My Mum Talks To Aliens", Dr. Bhathal discusses his work and the signal picked up from Gliese 581g and what it takes to be considered an "objective off-world signal from a non-terrestrial intelligent species."

According to NASA, Gliese 581 is a red, cool star that is 20.5 light-years from Earth, with 4 known planetary companions, one of these being Gliese 581e, with a mass of 1.9 Earths. Gliese 581c (Mass=5 Earths) also resides in the "habitable zone" [1].

List of discovered planets

[1] The habitable zone is also called the "Goldilocks zone", referring to the orbital area around a star (sun), which allows a planet in that zone to be just right (neither too hot, nor too cold).
