Astronomers in Canada have detected a mysterious volley of radio waves from far outside our galaxy. What corner of the universe these powerful waves come from and the forces that produced them remain unknown.
This object, a star, could have some sort of orbiting debris that periodically blocks the starlight, but researchers say they need more observations to figure out if that’s possible or if the flicker is caused by something else.
Australian researchers using a CSIRO radio telescope in Western Australia have nearly doubled the known number of 'fast radio bursts'— powerful flashes of radio waves from deep space.
Astronomers have discovered a new extremely distant object far beyond Pluto with an orbit that supports the presence of an even-farther-out, Super-Earth or larger Planet X.
“The emission is clearly above what the neutron star itself emits—it doesn’t come from the neutron star alone,” the study’s lead author stated.“This is very new.”
Using artificial intelligence algorithms, researchers with the Breakthrough Listen project discovered 72 previously undetected fast radio bursts from a still-unknown source some 3 billion light years away.
The Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME), a revolutionary new radio telescope, recently made its first-ever detection of a possible Fast Radio Burst (FRB).
An initiative set up to find signs of intelligent life in the universe has detected a series of mysterious radio signals from a dwarf galaxy 3 billion light years away.
Spectroscopic measurements of gas dynamics at the core of the Milky Way have revealed several unusual objects visibly whizzing around the supermassive black hole at the center of the galaxy .
A tiny fraction of dark matter could have a charge, allowing it to interact with regular matter during the time between the Big Bang and formation of the Cosmic Microwave Background, some physicists say.
