Radio signals from deep space detected

Just read  today, Hubble has located a Quasar that is as bright as 600 TRILLION suns!!

Hubble Quasar Discovery

Shining like 600 trillions suns: Hubble spots stunning star-producing quasar

Oh... my... god!   That is like 3,000 times the star brightness of the entire milky way galaxy :huh:   How does one even digest this stuff!? It's unthinkable

So the sender is most probably something equivalent to a black hole in mass.

It must act like a Pulsar and aim the radio source by some means, otherwise it would be radiating at that strength in all directions and need a much bigger energy supply. Which you would have to think is doubtful.

Fast Radio Bursts are not distributed randomly across the sky. The most conspicuous non-random grouping contains 19 of the 65 known sources (~29 percent). It is confined to a relatively small portion of the sky between Right Ascension 21 and 0 hours, Declination 0 to -63 degrees, which accounts for something on the order of 6 percent of the celestial sphere. I'm not aware of any astrophysical explanation for this grouping.

a while back I'd mention and get arguments from even the profs! on what we see is Ancient.  I'd mention that we're like slugs on the bottom of just one of the oceans as far as frequencies go .... insane like talking to a wall.. just deer in the headlights looks.

LOVE THE POSTING... hopefully if something hot is discovered it will pop in here at UM FIRST ! now that'd be cool. Okay ai have to go burn some more foods like items tataH LATERZZZZZZZZ

Radio waves are not a human invention. It's a discovery. Nature makes them all the time.

These FRB's have no detected pattern, so if they are made by ET's, they are seemingly pointless. And as L.A.T.1961 said:

Well that just isn't accurate, they occurred in measured intervals. This was caught by a newly established observatory though that is as of yet to be fully functional so regardless anyone getting excited in either direction is being premature.

Could it be a spy satellite mimicking a natural radio source?

That seems unlikely. Fast Radio Bursts have marked dispersion. This means that some of their radio frequencies arrive slightly earlier, some later. This phenomenon is well understood in astronomy. It's caused by the radio impulses passing through very long paths in space.  The greater the dispersion, the greater the distance.This is the basis for setting the distances of FRB sources at billions of light years.

Will someone please answer that damm intergalactic phone! It's been ringing for weeks. Aliens hate to be ignored.

Could it be a neutron star orbiting a black hole? Hiding signals as it passes behind creating a repetitive gap in the signal? I'm a welder, clearly not an astrophysicist, just curious if that's an

1.5 billion light years is quite a ways. That's around 500 times further away then Andromeda. I wonder if the wave front of the radio waves were enough to sterilize a section of that galaxy? 

Maybe a pair of neutron stars slowing colliding?

I'd agree if it was ET beings, that they are long gone at 1.5 billion years ago.

LOL there are 2 men in white coats ,carrying a straight jacket about to knock on your door.

I doubt this is s "straight" story about the aliens, but a "strait" jacket may well be indicated !

Thats worrying.

The Nazi aliens turn up only to discover their beloved fuhrer lost, we are all doomed!!!!

Yes, any conclusion is premature, but the mere power of the bursts strongly suggests that a black hole could be involved IMHO. The repeating ones could come from more than one object colliding with a large black hole.

The "huge spacecraft launch" theory has a major flaw, if you ask me. Given that FRB's have many sources far apart (millions of light years), one will have to assume that different alien races use the same technology. I find that highly unlikely. So my money is on a natural phenomenon.

That is from the movie War of the Worlds.    Your going to have to pick your nonsense from more obscure places.

It's only in that movie because that's how it's done. It's called "predictive programming" lol

With the new repeating FRB, they saw six impulses, spread out over a period of several months. Is a pulsar orbiting another object, which periodically blocks it emissions in our direction? If so, we should expect to see a multitude of very rapid pulses, followed by a silent period, then another large number of pulses, and so on. Since we don't see that type of pattern, I doubt that this is what is happening here.

Light from super far away often gets a "lens" effect from gravitational fields between us and the source. Perhaps numerous bodies in the source's native galaxy cause eclipses, or lensing effects, which would cause increasingly complex patterns of what ends up at our point in space.

Multiple lensing events on the same object, within just a few months? This could be unlikely, since most of the space, even within a galaxy, is largely empty. The great distance supposed, is a concern, too.  As the distance increases, the more unlikely that one object will line up precisely with another, to create a lensing event visible from our particular point of view.
