A TELESCOPE in Puerto Rico has confirmed what Australian astronomers have known for a while: There are mysterious sounds emanating from deep in outer space.
The Arecibo Observatory has picked up split-second bursts of radio waves from beyond the Milky Way, which have excited astronomers from around the world, science website Phys.org reports.
Parkes’ radio telescope in central NSW was the first to discover these curious pulses, but some scientists wrote these off because it was the only facility to report the findings.
But now the Puerto Rico telescope’s international team of astronomers has detected similar intergalactic radio wave bursts.
