More mysterious radio signals heard in deep space, and scientists are still baffled
Humans love staring at images of distant galaxies snapped from high-powered telescopes, but sometimes listening instead of looking can yield even more tantalizing hints at what lies beyond.
For years now, mysterious radio signals beaming through space have puzzled scientists. Called Fast Radio Bursts (or FRBs for short), these bizarre bursts of energy have no known cause, and only a handful of proposed explanations. Now, a new study published in Nature describes the discovery of over a dozen new instances of FRBs, but we're no closer to spotting whatever it is that's creating them than we were before.
