China published and then deleted a report on Tuesday that its FAST radio telescope may have detected traces of signals from an extraterrestrial civilization.
Chinese researchers have identified the “suspicious” signals as part of their ongoing exploration of extraterrestrial life, Newsweek reported. The signal was a narrowband electromagnetic signal and differed from a previous signal captured by the FAST “Sky Eye” radio telescope team, according to Time.
FAST discovered a series of signals coming from space, including a recent repetitive radio signal from a galaxy nearly 3 billion light-years from Earth. (RELATED: ‘Studied like bacteria’: Russian space agency chief comments on how aliens may have visited Earth)
The report was published by the state-backed Science and Technology Daily, which later appeared to have deleted it and other posts about the discovery, Time noted. The report cites and quotes Zhang Tonjie, chief scientist of the Extraterrestrial Civilization Research Team co-founded by Peking Normal University and the University of California, Berkley, according to Time.

Zhang reportedly said the Sky Eye is extremely sensitive and plays a vital role in the search for extraterrestrial civilizations, but the suspicious signal could be some kind of radio interference that requires further investigation, Time continued.
“After launching the search for extraterrestrial civilizations, the ‘China Sky Eye’ [FAST] has made significant progress,” the report states, according to BroBible, “A few days ago, Professor Zhang Tongjie, chief scientist of the China Extraterrestrial Civilization Research Group of the Department of Astronomy and the Extraterrestrial Civilization from Beijing Normal University, revealed that his team used the “Chinese Sky Eye” to discover several cases of possible technological traces and extraterrestrial civilizations outside of Earth.
The discovery was made in observational data on FAST’s exoplanet targets, BroBible continued.
Science and Technology Daily did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller’s request for comment on why the report was published and then apparently deleted.
