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?
Astronomers assisting in the search for extraterrestrial intelligence are now able to examine millions of stars more than before, thanks to a new listening device. The multibeam receiver at the Parkes Radio Telescope in Australia will be able to listen in on millions of stars around the Milky Way galaxy, searching for new lifeforms. The device is run by the Breakthrough Listen project, a part of Breakthrough Initiatives, founded in 2015.Read More The Search for Alien Life Just Grew a New Set of Ears
