For just the second time in history, astronomers have witnessed a repeating fast radio burst. These events are formed far beyond our galaxy, and release more energy in a small fraction of a second than our Sun produces in decades. Researchers are uncertain what causes this phenomenon, although they may be the result of black holes or ultra-dense neutron stars colliding with each other. The event was witnessed by researchers at the new CHIME radio telescope in Canada, as that instrument underwent early testing. Only 60 of these events have ever been recorded, and this is just the second one ever seen repeating. Once CHIME is fully operational, astronomers hope to see several dozen fast radio bursts every day.Read More Second Repeating Radio Burst Seen – Are Aliens Behind These Odd Events?
An astronomical observatory in Canada has recently found a mysterious burst of low-frequency radio waves emanating from deep space. Fast radio bursts, which last just a small fraction of a second, have been observed a few dozen times since they were first seen in 2007. However, this event, recorded on July 25th, is unlike any similar event ever before recorded, with a record low frequency. These events have left astronomers questioning what could cause these enormous explosions in deep space.Read More Strange Low-Frequency Radio Burst Reaches Earth from Deep Space – Is it Aliens?
