Scientists detect mystery radio signal sent from DEEP SPACE

Scientists Pick Up First Mysterious Radio Signal From Deep Space

A quick burst, was now - it was called FRB 180725A especially unique, as was discovered on a fairly low purity of 580 MHz.

Though it has been in operation for only about a year, CHIME has already detected several noteworthy FRBs, including several more low-frequency signals that followed shortly after the noteworthy FRB 180725A last week.

The Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment - or CHIME - detected the odd noise known as a fast radio burst on July 25, BGR.com reported.

The pulse's fast, low frequency suggests that the blast was extremely bright and originated from an insanely powerful source somewhere in the cosmos.

The signal, which astronomers call Fast discrete pulse (FRB), had a frequency below 700 MHz for the first time in the history of observation.

The post reads: "During its ongoing commissioning, CHIME/FRM detected FRB 180725A on 2018 July 25 at 17:59:43.115 UTC (18:59:43.15 BST/13:59:43.15 ET)".

FRBs are frequently picked up on radio telescopes though their exact origins aren't fully understood. The signal, known as Fast Radio Burst (FRB), lasted only a matter of milliseconds. It was specifically designed with the low and deep 400 to 800 frequencies in mind. "These events have occurred during both the day and night and their arrival times are not correlated with known on-site activities or other known sources of terrestrial RFI [radio-frequency interference]".

The question that remains is uncovering where these signals have come from, with many possible theories being thrown into the mix.

Mysterious radio signals emitted from across the universe. The MailOnline cited an astrophysics professor at the University of Nottingham, Christopher Conselice, as saying that they may be caused by "exploding stars, supernova, exotic stars like pulsars, magnetars, neutron stars or massive black holes [VIDEO] at the centre of distant galaxies". FRB, was by astronomers here on Earth are incredibly large distances from sources located so far away in space that we can't even see them.

Just a decade ago, first such FRBs were tracked and the CHIME was exclusively set up to catch such signals from the deep space from sources such as bursts from magnetars, exploding black holes, and of course, highly advanced alien civilizations if there are any. Scientists also believe that whatever produced the signal tends to be an extremely powerful extra-terrestial being.
