Researchers at the University of Sydney in Australia have recently discovered that mysterious radiation waves in space have a completely unknown origin, revealing a complete mystery about the nature of the energy they are emitting.
They come from an area in the center of our own Milky Way galaxy.
Some speculate that there can be no explanation other than the fact that some form of life is emitted by these radio waves into space. But none of the astronomers anywhere on Earth know what they are responsible for creating.
What they do know is that they come not from a star or a planet, but from a new kind of celestial body.
The newly discovered radiation waves in space are completely anomalous
Researchers in Australia, the United States, Canada, Spain, France, and South Africa, who published the findings in the journal Astrophysics, explained that the new radio wave signals had a very high polarization.
This means that its light oscillates in only one direction, but rotates in this direction over time.
At first they thought it might be a pulsar type of rotating dead star. Alternatively, they thought it might be a type of star that emits solar flares. However, the signals they observed do not match anything else unknown to mankind.
During the first nine months of 2020, scientists received at least six radio waves from space through SCIRO’s Ascap Radio Telescope in New South Wales, Australia.
Scientists are now hoping to make their discoveries public and put the information they have gathered together to provide some explanation for the origin of radio waves.
They also pointed out that the brightness of an object can change dramatically by as much as 100 times, and that radio wave signals appear to “light up” randomly. These facts alone may lead some to believe that some kind of conscious organism is responsible for emitting waves.
Citing Wang, an astronomer at the Institute of Astronomy and the School of Physics at the University of Sydney, admits that “we have never seen anything like it.”
Wang, as well as Tara Murphy, a university professor, recalls: “Looking at the center of our galaxy, we came across this unique object, which at first disappeared, then brightened, then faded and then reappeared. The behavior is completely abnormal. ”
Astronomers have a vast knowledge of the properties of many stars and other celestial bodies, and in fact, their puzzle over these radio waves from space makes events even more intriguing.
Most stars emit variable light through the electromagnetic spectrum. Pulsar, a type of neutron star; Supernovae, orbiting stars, and what are called “fast radio waves” (FRBs) are just a few objects in space where their brightness fluctuates.
But the new radio waves, first picked up by Ascap, a powerful Australian radio telescope, later have none of these features confirmed by the South African radio telescope Meerkat.
Attempts to monitor emissions with a conventional telescope also failed. Named after the scientist who first discovered the phenomenon, the Meerkat telescope, a religious sensor, was finally able to rediscover the unknown object in 2021, at which point it was officially named the “anti-object”.
Incredibly, Murphy said: “We were lucky to have the signal back, but we noticed that his behavior changed dramatically. When we watched it with the ASKAP radio telescope it was weeks but the source disappeared in one day. ”
Astronomers believe that these mysterious galaxies may have a small but insufficient magnetic field.
Along with several other unknown objects found in recent years of various kinds of brightness, it is now part of what is now known as the “Radio Transitions” at the Galaxy Center.
Soon they hope to find out more about these intriguing objects and what they are, at least in the next ten years, or the more powerful telescope system known as the Australian / South African Radio Telescope SKA, or the square kilometer array. Maybe trying to tell us.
