Messages From Deep Space

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Is someone trying to send us a cosmic message? Researchers are trying to figure out what caused a powerful burst of radio waves emanating from a dwarf galaxy about 3 billion light-years away.

On Wednesday, researchers said that they picked up a fast radio burst, or FRB that is different from the ones they have seen before. Previously noticed FRBs blink on and off but this one repeats but kind of stays on in between bursts.

Could it be a supernova? Could it be a younger FRB? Could it be Bizarro World? You decide!
