Scientists catch mysterious radio signal

A recurring Series of radio signals coming from deep space, was discovered about 500 million light years from Earth. Coming from a huge spiral galaxy, fast radiospace, or FRB-signals were also found in «strange» a V-shaped zvezdopada region of the galaxy, but that produces them remains unknown. According to an article published on the portal over the last few years there were more than 100 such signals, most of which were one-time events, representing a collapse of black holes or the collision of neutron stars. However, the FRB signal is completely different from the ones that were obtained earlier due to its regular recurrence. What exactly can it be?

Scientists received a radio signal from a distant galaxy

For the First time signals FRB was discovered in 2017, when the signal FRB 121102 was traced to the dwarf , located at a distance of three billion years. In a study published in the journal Nature, a new signal was studied for repeatability, coming from a large spiral galaxy similar to the milky Way. The study's author Jason Hessels believes that the source of the mysterious signal is the closest location of such type of signals to date, being approximately 6 times closer to our solar system than previously opened FRB 121102.

As is known at present, the signal FRB 180916 comes from external spiral arms with the presence of V-shaped zvezdopada region. Scientists believe that a very interesting form of field owes to the presence of a large number of ionizing gas at this point. The ionization source may be a destroyed satellite in the form of an ancient dwarf galaxy, giving a V-shape this area of the stellar object.

the source of the detected signal may be a Magnetar

Despite the fact that the object is producing happy variable signals have not been discovered, they may be young Magnetar — highly magnetized neutron star. In addition, the source of a mysterious radio signal could be a powerful jet of energy coming from located in this area of the black hole or highly charged nebula.

In order to solve this mystery, the team of Jason Hessels hopes to use the Hubble space telescope for closer examination . The relatively close location of the space object in this case may help researchers better understand the processes occurring in x-ray and gamma-ray detected object, bringing scientists to the solution of the FRB signal.
