Upon detection of a series of enigmatic signs that could come from outside our galaxy , astronomers try to understand their nature, without reaching a reliable conclusion .
Rapid bursts radio or Fast Radio Burst (FRB , for its acronym in English ) are bright radio bursts lasting a split second and never repeated, and were first discovered in 2007 by obervatory Parkes in Australia .
As reported in the RT News , the unusual signal was so faint that scientists suggested that the phenomenon came from a distance of billions of light years.
FRB debates about whether signals had a cosmic origin or whether they were more of a unique phenomenon in the location of Parkes due to unusual weather patterns or even product telescope itself unleashed .
FRB Since then there have been at least seven times , including those collected by the Arecibo telescope in Puerto Rico in 2012 , which ruled out the hypothesis of a technical interference.
However, many questions remain about the phenomenon , and from where they travel , how far and what exactly .
For now, the scientists suggest that the possible origins for the phenomenon are young stars of low mass contact, binaries solar mass orbiting so close together that share a common path and a collision of neutron stars.
On the other hand , continue to circulate the hypothesis that extraterrestrial civilizations are those that emit these signals.
"This can be a extraordinary discovery unknown or unusual phenomenon , or it could arise from a network of extraterrestrial communication , showing that the universe is flooded with intelligent life forms ," said Nigel Watson , author of ' UFO Research Manual ' .
