    Frequency from outside the Milky Way baffles astronomers

    In 1967 British astronomer Jocelyn Bell Burnell was left stunned by mysterious pulsing signals she detected coming from outside the solar system.

    For months she suggested the signals could be of an extraterrestrial intelligent origin, but they were later proven to be rapidly spinning stars known as pulsars.

    However, a new series of mysterious signals, known as Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs), has again got astronomers scratching their heads and wondering if, maybe, we’re picking up alien messages.

    I'm guessing that it was swamp gas. No, wait. It was a weather balloon. That's it, I'm sure of it.

    ‘It would be fantastic if this was an alien signal....'
    Ha ha, no it wouldn't. The odds of aliens being from Close Encounters are so minute as to be laughable. If we meet aliens it's going to end poorly for us.
