Earth is subject to an energy burst from a dead star that scientists can’t fully explain.The intense gamma rays, detected using a large telescope system in Namibia, emanate from the Vela pulsar, about 1,000 light-years away. From Earth, it’s a type of… the remains of a massive star that exploded 10,000 years ago, then collapsed in on itself.

British astronomer Dame Jocelyn Bell Purnell was the first to discover this type of star in 1967, but this study so far indicates high-energy rays from the pulsar, British newspaper “Daily Mail” reports.

According to study researcher Arache Djannati-Atai of the Astroparticle & Cosmology Laboratory (APC) in France, this does not mean aliens are trying to contact us.

He told MailOnline: ‘It’s true that the sources were named LGM1 and LGM2 after aliens when they were first discovered in 1967, but it was almost a joke.’

“We know for certain that pulsars are the corpses of massive stars and do not require alien intelligence to produce the signals we see on Earth,” the researcher added.

These pulsars are described as the remnants of stars that have exploded in spectacular fashion, the largest explosions in space. These pulsars emit rotating beams of electromagnetic radiation like cosmic lighthouses.

As its beam passes through our solar system, we see flashes of radiation at regular intervals, also known as radiation pulses, which can be searched for in different energy bands of the electromagnetic spectrum.
