Despite being 10 years since its initial detection, cosmic radio waves have always left astronomers scratching their heads, with some thinking that they are connected to extra-terrestrial life. Now, these strange bursts of energy have been connected to a dwarf galaxy over 3 billion light years from Earth. There are some that suggested these mysterious bursts of energy could be a sign alien life trying to communicated with us.
Now these signals have finally been tied to a source – a dwarf galaxy that is more than 3 billion light years from our parent. These bursts, known as Fast Radio Bursts, or FRBs, were first discovered back in 2007. Due to their random nature, it has taken quite some time for astronomers to conclude if they are anything other than mere glitches.
