A radio signal from deep space reached Earth

A radio signal from deep space (about 1.5 billion light-years away from Earth) has reached Earth, scientists from the University of British Columbia (UBC) have announced.

What makes this announcement fascinating is that this is only the second time in history that a radio signal has come to Earth repetitively.

Theories about what causes radio signals from that distance of space, range from the explosion of stars that are at a great distance from our planet, to the fact that they are transmissions emitted by some more advanced form of life (aliens), the British Independent announced.

However, for now, as for the first time when a repetitive radio signal came to Earth, it will remain a mystery, because it is a small cause for a scientific conclusion to be made.

The new radio signal is repeated six times from the same location.

“So far, we have only had one repetitive signal. With more and more of these repeating signals, we will be able to study them, but also to understand and solve this cosmic puzzle, ”said Ingrid Sters, a member of the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME) and an astrophysicist with UBC.
