The mysterious radio signals gathered Canadian astronomers. Surprise? They were not sent one but six times. From the same spot: a galaxy with more than 1,500 million light years of age.
No, it's not excessive. Usually these fast radio stations or the FRBs appear temporarily and randomly. That is, without revealing the patterns. That is why it is difficult to know them or more, to analyze them.
Until now it was not A confirmed case Repeat wave. And, of course, there were six repetitions in the same place, the astronomy world was crazy.
Extraterrestrial radio signals sent?
FRB's capacity is at least equal to the solar energy in milliseconds.
However, the origin of the powerful source of energy is still one enigma. In fact, there are scientists saying, Yes or No, they come from the place where the Milky Way goes down. There are also those who argue about the product Extraterrestrial civilization developed than ours.
And, of course, there are many such theories.
Other experts say that these types of signals are coming black holes or neutron stars with very strong magnetic fields. Some scientists also point out that this discovery really proves extraterrestrial life.
This is the case with the teacher Avid LoebAt the Harvard Astrophysics Center Postulates on these waves could be evidence "very" advanced alien technology.
Of course, the capture of the waves in space has nothing new. FRB was detected for the first time in 2001, the signs that were discovered in 2001, that is, six years ago.
Up to now, more than 60 have been captured, but twice have been repeated. In fact, it is not small, it attracts attention in the world of science.
Another case of FRB was repeated in 2012 with a wave that emerges About 2.5 billion galaxies around the Earth.
Located at the Chime Observatory by scientists British Columbia Canada They worked hard for three weeks. At that time, they portrayed 13 radio stations using a new type of radio telescope.
Nonetheless, professional teams repeated unprecedentedly how to repeat the new wave. "Until now, only one FRB was known to be repeated," said Dr. Ingrid Stairs, researcher at Chime Astrofisikari, researcher Nature Magazine
"Using more repeaters and more sources of research, we can understand these cosmic riddles, where they are and what they cause"he added.
In total, the radio telescope captured 13 falls, all with "dispersion" signals, less "repeat" in the case of FRB.
