Encrypted “Alien” Radio Signal Decrypted via Social Media

One of the more intriguing unsolved modern mysteries is the fast radio burst (FRB) phenomenon. Over the last several years, radio telescopes on Earth have been detecting more and more very brief, very powerful radio signals which originate from deep space. While astronomers have been able to locate the source of several of these signals,... Read more »

Fast radio bursts: stirrings from a galaxy far, far away

Scientists studying FRBs – energy explosions from distant parts of the universe – are on to something vitally important. But what causes them? In summer 2006, astronomer Duncan Lorimer started work on a seemingly routine piece of scientific research. Show More Summary
