Mysterious Alien Radio Signal From Deep Space Detected By A Canadian Telescope

Experts say it is the lowest radio emission received from beyond our Milky Way

Not having worked for a year, a new radio telescope in Canada, caught a very unusual signal.

FRBs are frequently picked up on radio telescopes though their exact origins aren't fully understood.

The pulse's fast, low frequency suggests that the blast was extremely bright and originated from an insanely powerful source somewhere in the cosmos. The signal has now been branded by the name "FRB 180725A".

If you haven't heard of fast radio bursts (FRBs), they're some of the most explosive and mysterious events in the Universe. It was the lowest frequency wave ever detected and it came from 3,000,000,000 billion light years away, which means whatever sent the signal sent it billions of years ago from deep space.

The Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment - or CHIME - detected the odd noise known as a fast radio burst on July 25, BGR.com reported.

The post reads: "During its ongoing commissioning, CHIME/FRM detected FRB 180725A on 2018 July 25 at 17:59:43.115 UTC (18:59:43.15 BST/13:59:43.15 ET)".

Unlike Black Ops 4 , however, Battlefield V will still include a campaign mode, and doesn't appear to be focusing on zombies. There is a possibility that Treyarch or publisher will give away the Activision keys on Twitter or on sites like eBay.

CHIME is located in British Columbia and its FRB from last month was reported in a post by the Astronomer's Telegram.

"These events have occurred during both the day and night and their arrival times are not correlated with known on-site activities or other known sources of terrestrial RFI (radio frequency interference)".

Meanwhile, FRB 180725A was "clearly detected at frequencies as low as 580 MHz and represents the first detection of an FRB at radio frequencies below 700 MHz", Boyle wrote in his report. The first radio burst was detected in 2001. Scientists are still unsure of their origin source, arguing that FRBs may be emerging from some kind of "extreme" environment in space, but none have been able to definitively show where they're coming from. Other possible origins include supernovas (exploding stars), supermassive black holes or various other sources of mighty electromagnetic radiation, such as pulsars.

University of Nottingham astrophysics professor Christopher Conselice said the discovery could help pave the way for a greater understanding of what causes FRBs.

"FRBs detected by astronomers here on Earth come from incredibly long distances, located so far off in space that we can't even see what might be creating them", according to author Mike Wehner.
