New Delhi: Originally predicted in the early 20th century by Albert Einstein, gravitational waves – ripples in space and time – were not detected until 2015, when the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) identified the first such signal from two merging black holes. On Wednesday, scientists announced the detection of a fourth gravitational wave signal coming as a…

Telescope detects MYSTERIOUS signal from space just days after being switched on

Telescope detects MYSTERIOUS signal from space just days after being switched on A TELESCOPE that had been turned on for just four days detected a signal from deep space which has baffled astronomers. Are FRBs of alien origin? Less than a week into its research, the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder telescope detected radio bursts emanating from the constellation Leo.The strange and rare signals are what as known as ‘fast radio bursts’ or FRBs but scientists are still unsure what causes them. However, what they do know is that they…
