FRBs linked to advanced extraterrestrial technology

FRBs linked to advanced extraterrestrial technology

Astronomers know for years that Fast radio bursts (FRBs) come from distant galaxies but their origin still remains a mystery. However, a new theory might have provided an answer to the question.

FRBs are pulses of radio energy or superbright flashes originating from some unknown cosmic location and last only a few milliseconds before disappearing forever. They can emit as much energy in a millisecond as our Sun does in nearly 10,000 years.

Proposed theory links mysterious FRBs to alien technology

Proposed theory links mysterious FRBs to alien technology

The mysterious celestial phenomena fast radio bursts (FRB) might be caused by advanced alien technology or alien space travel, according to a new theory proposed by Harvard researchers.

Scientists have catalogued less than two dozen FRBs, which can be described as superbright flashes, since the first one was captured in 2007. Many scientists believe that FRBs come from galaxies millions or billions of light-years away.

Avi Loeb, a theorist from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, said the artificial origin of the FRBs is worth contemplating and checking.

He explained that while aggression gave humans definite survival advantages, it must be controlled now as technology has advanced so much that aggression might destroy the whole human race by nuclear or biological war.
