Events in Science: Mysterious Radio Signals

Written By: Emilio Pagan

A mysterious radio signal has been spotted from outer space by a Canadian telescope. Astronomers are still unsure from where the signal came from. Fast Radio Burst or FRB were first discovered in 2007, but their origins are still unknown.

As it turns out FRB’s are actually much more common that someone might believe. In fact there are so relevant that there is an initiative called Breakthrough Listen that focuses on catching and finding the sources of FRB’s. It uses artificial intelligence to decipher patterns in the cosmic signals.

However this radio signal was different from the others because it was unusually repeating and it came from the same source. It is perceived that it has come from about 1.5 Billion light years away but actually location is far from certain.
