Radio Signals Come From Unknown Objects of the Milky Way That Mysteriously Disappear

Trying to understand everything about our Milky Way galaxy is like trying to make a second-grade student learn advanced mathematics. You just can’t do it. Therefore, trying to understand the mysteries of the entire Universe is out of the question. But the good news is that there are plenty of intelligent folks out there who try to learn more and more objective truths about our reality. 

Perhaps one day, astronomers will get to find out what are the mysterious objects that keep shooting radio signals from space and then mysteriously disappear. Insider is the publication telling the world about the unusual space phenomenon.

Four mysterious space objects

The radio signals come from mysterious space objects that surely aren’t any known type of stars. Wang, who is a physics Ph.D. student from the University of Sydney, together with his team, had watched through data obtained by the ASKAP radio telescope from Australia. One mysterious object from the center of our Milky Way galaxy was defying all odds. 

The mysterious object emitted powerful radio waves in 2020, and it couldn’t be found by astronomers using X-rays, visible, or infrared light. Astronomers became convinced that they’re dealing with something they had never encountered before.

Scott Hyman explained that any new discovery, as quoted by Insider, “adds to the full body of knowledge that either cements what we already know, or adds to it, or really could lead to revolutionary new understandings.”

He also said, as quoted by the same source: 

Whether these objects fall into those categories, we don’t know. We don’t know enough about them.

Judging only by how large our Milky Way galaxy is, astronomers sure have a lot of work to do while searching for the mysterious objects that beam radio signals through space. Our galaxy has a diameter of roughly 100,000 light-years across.
