Fifteen bursts of radio emission were detected by the Green Bank Telescope. This happened during the observation of a dwarf Galaxy 3 billion light years away. This is the first time bursts have been seen from this source at these frequencies.
An initiative to find signs of intelligent life, 15 fast radio bursts were detected emanating from the “Mysterious repeater” FRB 121102, according to Breakthrough Listen. Breakthrough Listen will describe the results in detail in an upcoming scientific journal article and they reported the result as an Astronomer’s Telegram.
Breakthrough Listen says, FRBs are bright pulses of radio emission from distant galaxies. FRBs or fast radio bursts were first detected with the Parkes Telescope in Australia. But now, they have been seen by several radio telescopes around the world.
They also say that explanations for FRBs range from outbursts to directed energy sources used by extraterrestrial civilizations to power spacecraft. Breakthrough Listen is a global astronomical initiative launched in 2015 by philanthropist Yuri Milner, cosmologist Stephen Hawking and Internet investor.
