    The previous report might be bogus.

    So "Simulations on the real data have shown that the probability that such a signal is just produced 'by chance' out of the noise is not negligible, of the order of several percents,”.

    If the chance of it being noise is "several percent" that means that the chance of it being real is slightly lower than 100% - I'll take my chances and think it true until proven otherwise :-)

    Great article - gives us hope for the future.

    It's probably possible that it is and it's possibly probable that it isn't.
