Aliens phoning home? Mysterious deep-space radio signals are more frequent than we thought A fantastically bright repeating radio signal from billions of light-years away has been discovered, only the second of its kind ever found. Scientists now believe these signals are much more common than previously thought.
Fast radio bursts are millisecond-duration, extragalactic radio flashes of obscure physical origin.
The majority of the 13 FRBs detected showed signs of 'scattering, ' a phenomenon that reveals information about the environment surrounding a source of radio waves.
"There are some models where intrinsically the source can't produce anything below a certain frequency". 400 Mhz is the lower limit of the CHIME experiment at the moment, so other FRBs at lower frequencies could simply be going undetected.
The scientists note that the repeaters were observed at a lower frequency compared to other recorded FRBs.
As for what FRBs are and where they come from, little is known. "It could be colliding black holes but you don't expect black holes to collide and then an hour later collide again, and then after that to collide again, right?" "The luminosity difference is many, many orders of magnitude", she said.
