ASTEROIDS APLENTY. Our solar system has no shortage of asteroids. At last count, NASA estimated there were 781,454 of the rocky bodies orbiting our Sun. Tens of thousands of those are floating between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter in an area appropriately named the asteroid belt.
Dozens of ‘mysterious radio bursts’ from outer space detected by alien-hunting artificial intelligence
AN artificial intelligence program hunting for alien life in the universe has picked up dozens of mysterious radio bursts. The Breakthrough Listen has detected 72 new fast radio bursts (FRBs) coming from a galaxy three billion light years from earth. Scientists have named the source of these signals, way outside the Milky Way galaxy, “repeater” FRB 121102.
