Are Aliens Trying To Contact Earth? Astronomers Detect Record 25 New Fast Radio Bursts

  • E.T. could well be phoning home, as scientists have detected 25 mysterious ‘fast radio bursts’ from outer space.
  • These blasts of powerful radiation were picked up by the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME) radio telescope between 2019 and 2021.
  • It is not currently known what produces fast radio bursts, or FRBs, but they are generally thought to be emanated by dying stars in distant galaxies.
