Scientists have caught a unusual signal from deep space

Located in British Columbia CHIME radio telescope (Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment) is looking for signals passing through the vacuum of space.

Fast radio bursts (FRBs) were first spotted over ten years ago. The interesting aspect to this radio signal is that it was detected in "real time", the Independent reported.

A decade ago, first such FRBs were tracked, and the CHIME was exclusively set up to catch such signals from the deep space from sources such as bursts from magnetars, exploding black holes and of course, highly advanced alien civilisations, if any.

The question that remains is uncovering where these signals have come from, with many possible theories being thrown into the mix. Beyond the visible spectrum, space is a colorful mess of radio signals and microwaves fired off by flaring "suns", collapsing stars, crackling magnetic fields, roiling dust clouds and seething black holes.

The Metro noted that "whatever produced the likely to be extremely powerful". Christopher Conselice, a professor of astrophysics at the University of Nottingham told Daily Mail, this discovery could help to pave the way for a greater understanding of what causes FRBs. However, he noted that they could come from some type of "physical mechanism".

"This is a fundamental part of physics that we don't understand and it's a deep mystery".

Is ET trying to contact us from deep space?

If Spurs were to sell Dembele without a proper replacement, then their midfield would be extremely thin when compared to other supposed title contenders.

This is exactly what Contact the movie was all about. However, the newly detected such signal is double-puzzling.

The signals can not be likened to any source known on Earth, so ET can not be ruled out.

While they are radio signals, FRBs don't hold any information that astronomers or researchers have been able to tap.

CHIME is composed of multiple elongated reflectors, rather than round dishes.

"Additional FRBs have been found since FRB 180725A and some have flux at frequencies as low as 400 MHz".

Just recently, the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME) telescope, has detected a mysterious alien radio signal from deep space as a low-frequency super-fast burst, also known as FRB, which was only a few milliseconds long.
