Scientists detect an unexplainable radio signal from outer space that repeats every 16 days

Fast radio bursts can emit as much power as hundreds of millions of suns but only last a few milliseconds, making them difficult to study, until now. For the first time, scientists have detected a radio signal from outer space that repeats at regular intervals. The series of “fast radio bursts” – short-lived pulses of radio […]
