Strange radio waves emitted by astronomers from the Milky Way’s central strain

MILK WAY GALAXY (WUTR / WFXV / WPNY) – Astronomers at the University of Sydney in Australia have discovered unusual signals coming from the center of the Milky Way. The source was detected six times between January 2020 and September 2020. New Landsat 9 satellite launch expands NASA capabilities “The strangest property of this new […]

Mysterious radio waves from the heart of the Milky Way confuse astronomers

Astronomers have detected mysterious radio waves originating from the center of the Milky Way, but so far have no idea what causes them, according to a new study published in the Astrophysical Journal on Tuesday. A team of scientists from around the world discovered the object using the CSIRO radio telescope in Western Australia. Ziteng […]

Scientists baffled by radio waves from the center of the Milky Way

Astrophysicists are baffled by a strange energy signal recently detected in the heart of the Milky Way galaxy, CNN reports. The radio signal, picked up by a telescope in Australia, is unlike any phenomenon scientists have seen before and could suggest a previously unknown stellar object, according to a new study. Upon its initial discovery, […]

Variable signal aligned at the heart of the Milky Way galaxy appeals to scientists – sciencedaily

Astronomers have discovered unusual signals coming from the direction of the center of the Milky Way. The radio waves do not correspond to any currently understood model of a variable radio source and could suggest a new class of stellar objects. “The strangest property of this new signal is that it has a very high […]

Indian scientists use radio waves to gain rare insight into the Sun’s interior

Months after Chandrayaan-2 examined the inner layers of the Sun, Indian scientists measured the magnetic field of an eruption in the Sun’s atmosphere. The team collaborated with international researchers to get a rare peek inside the Sun and study the inner workings of the brightest star in our solar system. Scientists at the Indian Institute […]

Never-before-seen radio waves detected from nearby stars and distant galaxies

Scientists measured thousands of nearby stars and distant galaxies that had never before been identified at radio wavelengths, while studying a galactic body near ours Milky Way galaxy – the Large Magellanic Cloud. Led by Keele University PhD student Clara M. Pennock and astrophysics reader Dr Jacco van Loon, the international team of researchers used […]

Mysterious fast radio bursts include lower frequency radio waves than previously detected

A burst from the periodically active repeating fast radio burst source 20180916B arrives at the LOFAR telescope. High frequency radio waves (purple) arrive earlier than low frequency radio waves (red). The inset shows an optical image of the host galaxy of the fast radio burst source and the position of the source within the host […]

Fast radio bursts include lower frequency radio waves than previously detected – sciencedaily

Ever since rapid radio bursts (FRBs) were first discovered over a decade ago, scientists have wondered what could generate these intense flashes of radio waves coming from outside our galaxy. In a gradual process of elimination, the field of possible explanations has narrowed as more information is gathered about FRBs – their lifespan, the frequencies […]
