Astrophysicist: No, space aliens are never the answer to mystery radio signals

From astrophysicist Paul Sutter at Space.com: An unusually strong signal from a sun-like star. A repeated pattern that seems too precise to be natural. Bleeps and bloops from unknown sources with head-scratching signatures. Sure, there’s a ton of stuff in space that could potentially maybe kind-of-sort-of create those signals, but could this … be it? […]

With a signal (at last!), mystery around fast radio bursts only deepens

Most perplexing mystery in astronomy. From Elizabeth Gibney at Nature: What causes split-second blasts of radio waves that appear in the sky from billions of light years away is one of the most perplexing mysteries in astronomy. Now, for the first time, astronomers have seen a flash of high-energy γ-rays [gamma rays] that looks as if […]

Elusive signal deepens the mystery of fast radio bursts

Astrophysicists have been baffled by fast radio bursts (FRBs), millisecond-long flurries of radio signals thought to come from deep in the cosmos. A new study published in The Astrophysical Journal Letters has revealed major details about FRBs, specifically how they might be related to bursts of y-rays. The study team said their work could help […]

Mystery grows for strange star- “It’s doing things we’ve never seen before”

When the observations and analysis of the star known as KIC 8462852 were posted to a preprint server in August, they caused quite a commotion due to their unusual nature. And now that those findings and observations have been officially published by The Astrophysical Journal, it turns out KIC 8462852 is even stranger than previously […]
