Radio signals coming from deep space detected in Canada

While scientists said that studying fast radio bursts is challenging because they're rarely spotted and "mostly one-offs", the repeating burst was one of a total of 13 bursts detected during a pre-commissioning run in the summer of 2018.

The CHIME team's results - published January 9 in two papers in Nature and presented the same day at the American Astronomical Society meeting in Seattle - settled these doubts, with the majority of the 13 bursts being recorded well down to the lowest frequencies in CHIME's range.

This new repeating fast radio burst is called FRB 180814.J0422+73 and was recorded six times coming from the same location, 1.5 billion light-years away.

Some scientists have speculated that the sources of FRBs might be rotating neutron stars with extremely strong magnetic fields, or even super-advanced radio beacons operated by extraterrestrial civilizations.

Astronomers have revealed details of mysterious signals emanating from a distant galaxy, picked up by a telescope in Canada. Additionally, "this second source shows burst behavior (i.e. multiple structures in the burst) that is extremely similar to the first repeating FRB and which is different from all the single FRBs", Tendulkar said.

UK Parliament votes to create financial obstacle to a 'no-deal' Brexit
Several Conservative MPs accused Bercow of being biased, and there was speculation of an attempt to remove him from his post. Wilson, one of 10 DUP lawmakers propping up May's minority government, described her deal as "ruinous".

"An FRB emitted from a merger of two neutron stars, or a neutron star and a black hole, for example, can not repeat".

One of the FRBs was repeating. 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", astrophysicist Ingrid Stairs told the Independent.

This particular set of signals was registered by the CHIME observatory, located in British Columbia's Okanagan Valley, which consists of four 100-metre-long, semi-cylindrical antennas that are able to scan the entire northern sky each day.

While most FRBs have been spotted at wavelengths of a few centimetres, the latest FRBs were detected at wavelengths of almost a metre, which opens up new lines of inquiry, according to the CHIME team.

At distances of billions of light years it's obviously very hard to test any of these theories, but detecting more FRBs, especially those that have a habit of repeating, could bring us closer to an explanation. "We haven't solved the problem, but it's several more pieces in the puzzle".

'Or near the central black hole in a galaxy. "But it has to be in some special place to give us all the scattering that we see".

Another interesting twist has to do with the radio frequencies of the newly detected bursts.

The new FRBs are are also at unusually low radio frequencies.

A member the team Dr Cherry Ng from the University of Toronto in Canada said: "That could mean in some sort of dense clump like a supernova remnant".
