A radio telescope set up in Canada was able to pick up a mysterious radio signal emanating from an unknown source across the universe at frequencies below 700 MHZ on July 25.
The baffling radio burst detected by the Canadian radio telescope is a unique FRB signal, given the fact that its frequency is only 580 MHz.
This means that whatever produced the signal, which has been named "FRB 180725A", is likely to be extremely powerful.
"Fast radio bursts are exceedingly bright given their short duration and origin at great distances, and we haven't identified a possible natural source with any confidence", he said a year ago.
There was a Fast Radio Burst called FRB 121102, which was heard many times in the past years.
The latest mystery signal was detected by CHIME, a state-of-the-art radio telescope that looks like a skateboarder's half-pipe in the mountains of British Columbia. In a diagram measuring the radio frequency over time, there is a clear bright streak beginning below 600 MHz.
Scientists Just Received a Massively Powerful Signal Coming from Deep Space
This puzzling radio signal, dubbed as FRB 180725A is the lowest radio burst ever detected from beyond our galaxy, the Milky Way, and, as the experts agree, its source must be a very powerful one. Boyle adds that odd event did not correlate with any known activities or other known sources.
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. No one knows where they originate from or what they are exactly.
Researchers are not ruling out the possibility that these fast radio signals, which only last a few milliseconds, might be sent out by an advanced alien civilization residing in the depths of space.
Unfortunately, we'll have to wait a long time before we know for sure if these sounds come from black holes colliding, exploding stars or aliens lurking in space.
".And even some pretty unusual ideas about extraterrestrial civilizations sending signals to earth".
But despite FRBs' relative rarity in astronomy, they are probably a regular cosmic occurrence, Christopher Conselice, a professor of astrophysics at the University of Nottingham who was not involved in the discovery, told The Daily Mail. "It could even be some other physical mechanism that we don't yet understand".
