  • Radio burst is sending signals to Earth every 16 days

    A mysterious object in a galaxy 500 million light years away is confusing scientists with its signals. It appears to be transmitting signals that reach Earth in a repeating, 16 day pattern, but researchers have no idea why.

    According to a recent study, this marks the first time astronomers have detected a reliable pattern in the signals, known as fast radio bursts, or FRB's. It's an important step in figuring out where the bursts originate from.

    Before now, such pulses appeared to be random in timing. That changed when the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment Fast Radio Burst Project (CHIME/FRB) discovered a repeating pattern.
