Scientists Pick Up First Mysterious Radio Signal From Deep Space

Beyond the visible spectrum, space is a colorful mess of radio signals and microwaves fired off by flaring "suns", collapsing stars, crackling magnetic fields, roiling dust clouds and seething black holes. "This is about better understanding how the universe began and what lies ahead".

There was a Fast Radio Burst called FRB 121102, which was heard many times in the past years.

Canada's new radio telescope has picked up a mysterious signal from deep in space with a frequency so low, it's never been detected before.

CHIME detected the FRB 180725A, followed by radio signals at much lower frequencies at 400 kHz, which are confirmed not to have originated anywhere on Earth but owe their origin somewhere in the celestial universe. Prior to that, none of the "heard" FRB was not below 700 MHz.

The study of FRBs is only in its incipient stages and astronomers are confident that more such radio signals will be detected as our technology progresses.

".And even some pretty unusual ideas about extraterrestrial civilizations sending signals to earth".

Whatever it is - black holes colliding, a star exploding, or just some aliens having a really loud party - we'll probably have to wait a long, long time before science can say for certain.

And, with this, 64 per cent say that the internet is now an essential part of their life , according to Ofcom . However 15 per cent of people agreed that it made them feel like they were always at work.

FRBs remain an utter mystery to astronomers and routinely draw the curiosity of alien hunters.

To travel that long and far took an extraordinary amount of energy.

Researchers believe that these FRBs are at a distance of 3 billion light-years from Earth.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, astrophysics professor Christopher Conselice of the University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom discusses the possible sources of FRBs, noting that the recently-discovered low-frequency signals might shed new light into what causes this intriguing phenomenon. FRBs aren't uncommon, but they are quite special in that their origins are completely unknown.

Since 2007 when the radio astronomers detected FRB signals for the very first time, only 24 such low-frequency super-fast bursts have been identified.

Scientists can not yet identify the process which produces the short and sharp radio wave bursts, which means we can not rule out the possibility they were made by aliens. The signal has now been branded by the name "FRB 180725A".
