China’s Giant Telescope Receives Mysterious Signals From Space

China’s Giant Telescope Receives Mysterious Signals From Space

Chinese astronomers have repeatedly caught mysterious signals such as the 'Fast Radio Burst' (FRB) on the world's largest and most sensitive radio telescope, whose source maybe about three billion years away from Earth. This information was given by China's official news agency Xinhua on Monday.

Researchers at the National Astronomical Observatories of the Chinese Academy of Sciences said the scientists captured these signals from a 500-meter-long 'aperture spherical radio telescope' and are being closely studied.

'Fast radio bursts' are by far the most known optical explosion in the universe. According to Xinhua, 100 'bursts' were detected from late August to early September. This is the highest number of bursts ever seen. FRBs are luminous, unresolved, and millionth-second optical glimpses that occur outside the galaxy.
