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.
