Scientists Baffled By Mysterious Radio Bursts Coming From Deep Space

Job 11:7, “Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty?”

Yet again, even though scientists sometimes have a habit of speaking as though they have the answers to everything, God always has a way of saying, “No, you don’t” …

CBS Tampa Bay – “A succinct blip of sound detected from far beyond the Milky Way Galaxy amid deep space has left scientists saying they ‘really have no handle on’ the mysterious ‘fast radio burst.’

The split-second burst of radio waves discovered through the Arecibo radio telescope has given scientists new evidence of the rare, mysterious pulses emanating from deep outer space – well beyond the ends of the galaxy. Published July 10 in The Astrophysical Journal, the ‘fast radio burst’ is the first of similar sounds to be detected by an installation other than the Parkes radio telescope in Australia.

The Arecibo Observatory is the world’s largest single-aperture telescope located in Puerto Rico. The radio telescope has been featured in numerous movies and television shows including 1995’s James Bond film ‘Goldeneye.’

‘Our result is important because it eliminates any doubt that these radio bursts are truly of cosmic origin,’ said Victoria Kaspi, an astrophysics professor at McGill University in Montreal and principal investigator for the pulsar-survey project that detected this fast radio burst. ‘The radio waves show every sign of having come from far outside our galaxy – a really exciting prospect.’

Although exact origins for the sound bursts are still an enigma for astrophysicists, proposed possibilities include evaporating black holes, merging neutron stars, or flares from extremely powerful deep-space magnetic fields.” Read more.

Flashback: Scientists Puzzled By Massive Gamma-Ray Burst In Space Suggesting A ‘Common Central Engine’ To ‘Contemporary’ And Distant Universe – “An exploded star some 3.8 billion light-years away is forcing scientists to overhaul much of what they thought they knew about gamma-ray bursts – intense blasts of radiation triggered, in this case, by a star tens of times more massive than the sun that exhausted its nuclear fuel, exploded, then collapsed to form a black hole. Last April, gamma rays from the blast struck detectors in gamma-ray observatories orbiting Earth, triggering a frenzy of space- and ground-based observations. Many of them fly in the face of explanations researchers have developed during the past 30 years …” Read more.

Flashback: Expert: Something Massive Might Be ‘Tilting’ The Universe, But We Have No Idea What It Is – “Scientists have started to look more carefully at the structure of the universe by analysing light from distant galaxies to look at the speed and direction of moving objects like planets and stars. They have observed that rather than moving apart as expected, some distant clusters of galaxies actually appear to be caught in a space current, much like a river. And they are moving at incredibly fast velocities or around two million miles an hour, along a certain path. Scientists are unsure why but have labeled the phenomenon ‘dark flow’. To work out why this must be happening, Glenn said scientists believe there must be ‘something huge out there.’” Read more.

Flashback: Planet-Forming Dust Disc Surrounding Distant Star Disappears, Astronomers Now Question How Planets Formed – “A disc of planet-forming dust around a distant star has disappeared unexpectedly, leaving astronomers scratching their heads and questioning current theories of how planets are formed. ‘It’s like the classic magician’s trick: Now you see it, now you don’t,’ said astronomer Carl Melis of UC San Diego, who led the team that discovered the phenomenon. ‘Only in this case, we’re talking about enough dust to fill an inner solar system and it is really gone.’ The team has proposed several possible explanations for the disappearance, but ‘none are really compelling,’ Melis said.” Read more.
