In 2007, astronomers discovered a high-energy radio signal emanating from far beyond our galaxy, and because it turned up for no obvious reason, some began speculating that the signal could’ve been...
Last week, astronomers managed to trace a mysterious, fleeting radio signal back to a distant galaxy. Since then, teams from around the world have tracked down ten more. The latest was spotted by a...
Astronomers who detected a mysterious, fleeting radio signal from space finally figured out where it came from. The radio burst, which only lasted for one millisecond, originated from the outer...
Alien Life Avi Loeb, the chair of the Harvard Astronomy Department, has long been preoccupied with the question of whether humans are alone in the universe. He’s speculated that fast radio bursts...
Bursting Out Fast radio bursts (FBRs) are short pulses of radio waves emanating from far beyond our galaxy. Since 2007, researchers have observed more than 60 FRBs, but just one example of a...
ALIEN AI Searching the skies for extraterrestrial life means spending a lot of time separating signals from noise. Luckily, AI is particularly good at that. In a new study accepted by The...
Scientists typically use atomic clocks to sync up radio telescopes, but those devices are expensive. Now, a new study shows how fiber optic telecommunications networks could perform the same task...
Scientists observed a repeating fast radio burst three billion lightyears from Earth. The discovery gives clues about the source of these mysterious bursts.
Researchers have discovered the waves from FRB 121102 are highly twisted, suggesting they must be passing through a powerful magnetic field. This can help us narrow down the source of these...
2017 saw some spectacular advances in astronomy that is helping us to better understand the vast universe. Advancing technology will undoubtedly continue these discoveries into the new year.
