Mystery radio signal coming from INSIDE our galaxy detected

SCIENTISTS have detected the source of a mysterious, flashing signal coming from the depths of the Milky Way. The radio blip, which hit sensors at an extremely sensitive telescope in Australia, is said to have come from near the centre of our home galaxy.

The discovery has baffled experts, as its radio signature – the fingerprint of the signal – doesn’t appears to fit any known object in the universe. Previously, strange radio signals detected by scientists – such as elusive “fast radio bursts” – have been found to originate from young stars. It’s possible, of course, that the signal comes from a known object. However, its highly unusual radio wave signatures make it near impossible to account for, suggesting the discovery of an entirely new cosmic object. The research team, led by Ziteng Wang of the University of Sydney in Australia, have named the mystery object ASKAP J173608.2-321635. Most read in News TAKING ITS TOLL UK Covid…
