A 14-meter huge radio telescope settled at National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Green Bank have detected 15 different speedy radio signals approaching our planet from black holes and neutron stars from distant galaxies. These tiny galaxies are located at a distance of 3 billion light years from our solar system.
These radio signals are the foundation of fast radio bursts (FRBs) that were first detected in 2001. Scientist discovered these FRBs consists of very high-frequency waves of seven gigahertz that are beyond one’s imagination. They are still struggling to find out the exact source of these unnatural radio waves.
According to Scholz, one of the researcher FRBs are found to be repetitive in nature. These signals were previously observed two billion years ago when only single-celled organisms existed on our planet. We have many technologies that can give most accurate reasons of these repetitive nature of signals. Nature of these repetitive signals was discovered 10 years ago
Researchers are planning to build a new telescope Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment to work on these newly discovered radio signals. The object giving out these signals can have a size of a city but mass can be promisingly compared with the mass of the sun.
The source of radio signals is definitely not going to be an extra-terrestrials lives. And if in any case, this source doesn’t prove to be the aliens then it will be more mysterious and fun to find out the something strange that is going to be added to our list of discoveries.
A similar mysterious event took place in the 1970s that gave out gamma rays. After studying the nature of those rays for many years it was revealed that they had their origin from the cosmic bodies, says Emily Petroff, a researcher at Institute for Radio Astronomy in Netherlands.
FRBs have discovered only 10 years ago, and we’ve already learned so much about them. And we’re finding more and more of them every year. Even just the past 12 months have been a complete whirlwind of activity and new results. Lots of new telescopes are coming online in the next 6 to 12 months that are going to find hundreds of FRBs per year, so it’s going to be an incredible time!”
