Scientists discover 8 new repeating signals coming from beyond our galaxy — one of them may be close

Scientists recently discovered several new repeating radio signals making their way to Earth from different locations in the universe, and no one knows yet what is causing them.

Eight new repeating fast radio burst (FRB) sources have been discovered using the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME) telescope, and the findings were published in a report on Arxiv earlier this month.

Scientists believe one of these repeating signals could be coming from relatively nearby, perhaps just beyond the Milky Way, but their report cautions that more research needs to be done to be certain.
