Are we getting radio messages from Aliens ?

Radio bursts from outer space which experts suggest could be evidence of aliens have been detected for the second time.

The ‘Fast Radio Bursts’ (FRBs) are only a millisecond-long and were first detected in repeated form accidentally in 2007, when a burst signal was spotted in radio astronomy data collected in 2001.

The new discovery reported in the journal Nature was made by a Canadian-led team of astronomers on the hunt for FRBs last summer.

Most scientists believe they are generated by powerful astrophysical phenomena such as black holes or super-dense neutron stars. But a few have suggested more outlandish theories.

Professor Avid Loeb, from the Harvard-Smithsonian Centre for Astrophysics in the US, argues that they could be evidence of incredibly advanced alien technology.

Where the FRBs come from is not known although they are thought to emanate from sources billions of light years away outside our galaxy, the Milky Way.
