What a burst of radio signals from space could mean for life in the stars
Astronomers are studying radio signals that have been detected by a telescope in China. And there are a lot of them to study, which is part of what scientists say makes this discovery so interesting.
Over a period of 47 days in 2019, the telescope picked up more than 1,600 fast radio bursts, which is the most ever detected.
The Show talked about this with Dan Marrone, a professor of astronomy at the University of Arizona who mainly works in radio astronomy. Marrone explained how far away from us these signals may be coming.
