For the second time, Scientists have detected the radio signals coming from a source located in galaxy 1.5 bn light years away. The signals have created confusion and even offered a chance to know what might be throwing out the signal from billions of light years away.
These radio bursts are expected to be the outcome of everything like exploding stars or message from aliens. The signals last for a millisecond but they are flung out with the same amount of power that the sun takes 12 months to produce.
Scientists saw repeat signal for six times, probably from the same location. Shockingly, more than 60 fast radio signals detected so far, only one of them has ever repeated.
As per saying of Ingrid Stairs who is a member of the CHIME team and an astrophysicist at UBC, “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,”
Repeating set of signals could also help scientists to know what differentiates them from single bursts.
