Scientists Pick Up Mysterious, Powerful Signals From Deep Space

Scientists Pick Up Mysterious, Powerful Signals From Deep Space

A radio telescope set up in Canada was able to pick up a mysterious radio signal emanating from an unknown source across the universe at frequencies below 700 MHZ on July 25.

A new bulletin from The Astronomer's Telegram reveals that the new telescope detected what is known as a Fast Radio Burst, or FRB.

Although scientists have yet to decipher where FRB 180725A originated from, its unexpectedly low frequency has driven them to speculate that whatever source sent this signal across the universe is likely "extremely powerful", states the Daily Mail.

Plenty of invisible light is shooting across the universe, but most of it is recognizable to scientists, such as signals from dying stars, black holes, magnetic fields, and the like, Live Science notes.

Fast radio bursts are extremely unusual, with the first discovered in 2007 and only two dozen recorded since then. The signal lasted for only fractions of a second, but he was recognized by radio waves with the lowest frequency ever recorded by scientists.

According to a report in The Astronomer's Telegram, on the morning of 25 July 2018, an array of radio telescopes in British Columbia, Canada, detected a very odd FRB.

The FRB detected in this case, called FRB 180725A, is particularly unique because it had a frequency as low as 580 Mhz. In a diagram measuring the radio frequency over time, there is a clear bright streak beginning below 600 MHz. The first radio burst was detected in 2001.

Apparently, it is said that all these signals come from the Milky Way but few of them are dated back to billions of years ago.

No one knows what this mysterious signal is, where it came from, or why it suddenly crossed Earth's radar.

"They could be caused by exploding stars, supernova, exotic stars like pulsars, magnetars, neutron stars or massive black holes at the center of distant galaxies".

Due to the unknown origins of FRBs, it has attracted the curiosity and scrutiny of alien hunters.

University of Nottingham astrophysics professor Christopher Conselice said the discovery could help pave the way for a greater understanding of what causes FRBs. FRB, was by astronomers here on Earth are incredibly large distances from sources located so far away in space that we can't even see them.
