FIT TO BURST

Chat It's Fate - - Fairy Folklore -

We’re al­ways search­ing for proof of life on other plan­ets – now some sci­en­tists think they may have dis­cov­ered just that. 93 mys­te­ri­ous and rare ‘ra­dio fast bursts’ have been dis­cov­ered by re­searchers on Break­through Lis­ten, a ma­jor project which scans stars look­ing for in­tel­li­gent life.

These ‘bursts’ can emit as much en­ergy in a sec­ond as the sun does in 10,000 years. But they come from a galaxy three bil­lion light years from Earth so they’d need to cre­ate a lot of en­ergy for us to no­tice them!

Sci­en­tists don’t know for sure what causes them, with many sug­gest­ing they could be nat­u­ral en­ergy caused by ex­plod­ing stars – but some have put for­ward the the­ory that they’re ex­trater­res­trial sig­nals that have been de­lib­er­ately sent in Earth’s di­rec­tion. The truth is out there.
