Newswise — The discovery of a split-second burst of radio waves by scientists using the Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico provides important new evidence of mysterious pulses that appear to come from deep in outer space.

The finding by an international team of astronomers, published July 10 in The Astrophysical Journal, marks the first time that a so-called “fast radio burst” has been detected using an instrument other than the Parkes radio telescope in Australia.

Scientists using the Parkes Observatory have recorded a handful of such events, but the lack of any similar findings by other facilities had led to speculation that the Australian instrument might have been picking up signals originating…

  1. In the Electric Universe model, I believe this phenomenon is caused by the radio burst created when stars are born, when two Birkeland Current`s come together and dump gigantic amounts of electric charge into a very small area (the z-pinch point), the result being a new star. Scale this up, extra-galactically (outside our own galaxy), then the radio bursts from millions of new stars which are being born all the time, in millions of galaxies, their signals reaching earth in a random sequence due to the massive range of distances, (probably out to infinity, the farthest signals probably being the weaker ones but not necessarily), will show up just like the signals seen in the above article.
