Astronomers Detected Radio Signals From 1.5 Billion Light Years Away!

So… are aliens real?

Whenever there’s a new discovery in deep space, we tend to think of one theory… ALIENS. Especially if there’s a repeat of something rather unusual.

Astronomers have unraveled new details of repeating radio signals emanating from a distant galaxy, which was picked up by a telescope in Canada.

However, at this point in time, the nature and origins of the blasts of repeating radio waves is still unknown.

What makes this different from other radio signals from space though?

This was an unusual discovery as the fast radio bursts, also known as FRBs, came from the same source about 1.5 Billion light years away.

Ingrid Stair, an astrophysicist from the University of British Columbia said that the discovery is another suggestion that there could be more repeating radio signals in deep space and this could help astrophysicists and scientists to better understand these cosmic puzzles as well as where they are coming from and what causes them.

Through the decades, scientists have detected around 60 single fast radio bursts but only 2 of those were repeats. It is believed that this could be as many as a thousand FRBs in the sky every day.

The research is now published in NATURE,  a weekly international journal publishing the finest peer-reviewed research.

While there is no definite answer to this cause, whatever is out there in the universe, we hope it’s friendly.
