Scientists have encountered strange unexplained radio bursts from outer space, and they think it is evidence that aliens exist.
It was said that the ‘Fast Radio Bursts’ (FRBs) were only a millisecond-long, but they were enough to spark suspicion in that area. The first kind of this burst was detected in 2007 from a radio astronomy data collected in 2001.
The new discovery reported in the journal Nature was made by a Canadian-led team of astronomers on the hunt for FRBs last summer.
Where the FRBs come from is not known although they are thought to emanate from sources billions of light years away outside our galaxy, the Milky Way.
Chime astrophysicist Dr Ingrid Stairs, from the University of British Columbia, Canada, said: “Until now, there was only one known repeating FRB.
“Knowing that there is another suggests that there could be more out there. And with more repeaters and more sources available for study, we may be able to understand these cosmic puzzles – where they’re from and what causes them.”
