    Default Repeating short burst radio waves i study from the journal Nature

    Far outside our Milky Way galaxy, something is causing repeating short bursts of radio waves to be released into space. Scientists have recorded the second repeating fast radio burst to be discovered, according to a study published Wednesday in the journal Nature.

    New radio telescope coming on line. This looks interesting. I am not a believer in these repeating signals are other intelligence based life, but pretty much natural. Still this is interesting. Since I am not up to speed on the science involved hear, I would like to hear what others know about this article in Nature. CNN did not contribute much, but that is where I found the link.

    We need more satellites and/or other receivers in strange locations to accidentally catch this thing so we can triangulate next time.

    Point is, their are a lot of galaxies in any direction. Which one? If middle of nowhere, which vague point of middle of nowhere?

    One thing is for certain: the more profoundly baffled you have been in your life, the more open your mind becomes to new ideas.

    Let's think the unthinkable, let's do the undoable. Let us prepare to grapple with the ineffable itself, and see if we may not eff it after all.
