The Universe is full of mysteries that we don’t yet know. In fact, we don’t even know all the events that are happening on our own planet. But it has always been said that the future of humanity is out there, so it is necessary to know all the possible scenarios that may arise when the time comes. That’s why talking about a laser beam coming from a nebula makes us think, and that’s why European astronomers are still investigating the strange event, but without clear results. What is this laser beam?
A laser beam released from an ant nebula. What is the universe telling us?
As much as it sounds like a science fiction novel, it’s real. The strange laser of the Ant Nebula was captured by the European Space Agency thanks to the use of infrared telescopes located in the Herschel space observatory. Recent reports reveal an intense laser emission emerging directly from the core of the nebula, which has completely puzzled scientists.
There are certain phenomena that, although totally strange, can generate lasers and light emissions inside the nebulae. However, scientist and astronomer Donald Menzel was the first to propose the idea that lasers could be generated by nebulae in space. In addition, Menzel was also the specialist who discovered Menzel 3, better known as the ant nebula.
An attempt at extraterrestrial communication or a strange phenomenon of the universe?
According to Menzel’s theories, there is a recombinant hydrogen laser emission that usually occurs in an extremely narrow range of physical conditions. This type of emission could only be identified in a small group of objects before. For this reason it is extremely surprising that a phenomenon with such extraordinary qualities has been able to be captured.
However, another large part of the community, the specialist in UFO and extraterrestrial phenomena, has not wasted any time and has taken on the task of affirming that it is nothing more than an attempt at Martian communication.
Whether it is the first or the second, it is a fascinating and extremely strange phenomenon, which we will surely find out for sure in the not too distant future.
