Radio signals coming from spaces have been detected by astronomers. It is the second of its kind, which has questioned its originals. The signal is coming from a galaxy believed to be nearly 3 billion light-years away. The detection of the new Fast Radio Burst (FRB) termed FRB 20190520B raises some important questions about the origin and source of these signals.

Some findings by the researchers have been published in a new paper in the scientific journal Nature. The paper notes that the source of FRB 20190520B is “co-located with a compact, persistent radio source and associated with a dwarf host galaxy of high specific-star-formation..” It is close to another unknown object which is emitting a weaker radio signal. This sort of combination has only been observed in another FRB.

FRB is intense but brief flashes of radio frequency emissions and these typically last milliseconds. These are known to send out repeat radio waves multiple times. However, scientists are yet to fully understand the phenomenon, and they were first discovered back in 2007.  The discovery of FRB is credited to graduate student David Narkevic and his supervisor Duncan Lorimer, according to Space.com.

The paper notes that the FRB 20190520B, was detected using the Five-hundred-meter.

Aperture Spherical radio Telescope (FAST) in Guizhou, China in May 2019. Scientists followed this up with monthly observations and detected nearly 75 bursts between April 2020 and September 2020 detected. The researchers localized FRB 20190520B using the US National Science Foundation (NSF)’s Karl G Jansky Very Large Array (VLA), which is a radio astronomy observatory located in central New Mexico. Researchers also observed that the object constantly emits weaker radio waves between bursts.
