Researchers Come Across First Repeating Radio Bursts To Come Back From Space

However, researchers do not know at this time what the radio bursts mean for sure.
The radio activity was firs detected by Breakthrough Listen postdoctoral researcher Vishal Gajjar with the Green Bank telescope in West Virginia.
Aug. 31 (UPI) — Breakthrough Listen, a $100 million project to find signs of alien life in the universe, announced Wednesday that it detected 15 powerful, repeating radio pulses coming from a galaxy 3 billion light years away.
“Bursts from this source have never been seen at this high a frequency,” said Andrew Siemion, director of the Berkeley SETI Research Center and of the Breakthrough Listen program.
“Whether or not fast radio bursts turn out to be signatures of extraterrestrial technology, Breakthrough Listen is helping to push the frontiers of a new and rapidly growing area of our understanding of the universe around us,” Siemion said.
