An initiative created to find signs of intelligent life in the universe revealed mysterious radio signals coming from a small galaxy about 3 billion light-years away from Earth.
The scientists said they received about 15 radio pulses from deep space, on November 2, 2012, and although other signals are identified, but what makes these pulses unique and raised more attention, the devices picked up again in 2015, Its location was identified a year later, according to the Huffington Post.
In a recent statement, the organization said it had used special equipment in western Virginia to monitor the location of the 5-hour radio pulse on Saturday and was able to determine 15 pulses on a bandwidth of 4 to 8 GHz.
"It's unbelievable how individual bursts can surface anywhere in this wide range of frequencies, although each individual pulse has relatively narrow frequency coverage," says Peter Williams of Harvard University. No one has yet made a logical explanation of how this happened. "
To prove this discovery, the organization created a moving image, showing 14 of the 15 radio pulses identified.
"The possible explanations for these pulses range from periodic neutron star explosions with very strong magnetic fields to more conflicting ideas about the energy sources used by civilizations outside the Earth," the organization said in a statement.
