Radio telescope picks up new frequency in space ZlotoNews

Alien fans, keep your eyes to the skies - Scientists in Canada have picked up a brief burst of radio which was sent by an unknown source in deep space.

'The fact the lower frequency FRB has been detected provides hope that we can understand more about where they come from and what causes them.

This means that whatever produced the signal, which has been named "FRB 180725A", is likely to be extremely powerful.

Since 2007 when the radio astronomers detected FRB signals for the very first time, only 24 such low-frequency super-fast bursts have been identified. Researchers claim that this is the lowest frequency FRB ever recorded emitted from across the universe.

Venezuelan President survives apparent drone assassination attempt
Maduro was unharmed in the alleged attempt, but he later said that "they tried to kill me", according to local reports . The other machine collided into a nearby building and exploded, he said. "Seconds later there was a second explosion".

According to the MailOnline, the emission was detected by the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment telescope, which has been operating for less than a year.

But FRB 180725A had a few more surprises in store.

Patrick Boyle, of McGill University, first reported the detection of the FRB with a post on the astronomical publication Astronomer's Telegram.

The signal, which astronomers call Fast discrete pulse (FRB), had a frequency below 700 MHz for the first time in the history of observation. Because it had a frequency as low as 580 Mhz. CHIME was created to detect ancient radio waves sent out when the universe was just a toddler, some 6 billion to 11 billion years ago.

They can generate as much energy as 500 million Suns in mere milliseconds, and there could be as many as one happening every second. Boyle adds that odd event did not correlate with any known activities or other known sources.

'They could be caused by exploding stars, supernova, exotic stars like pulsars, magnetars, neutron stars or massive black holes at the centre of distant galaxies.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, astrophysics professor Christopher Conselice of the University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom discusses the possible sources of FRBs, noting that the recently-discovered low-frequency signals might shed new light into what causes this intriguing phenomenon.

Due to the unknown origins of FRBs, it has attracted the curiosity and scrutiny of alien hunters. 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.
