Researchers have detected a pattern of fast radio bursts traced to a galaxy 500 million light years away. That’s according to CNN.

Single and repeating radio bursts originating outside our galaxy are not a new phenomenon.

However, this newly discovered fast radio burst (FRB) reportedly repeated itself every hour for four days, then went silent for 12 days, repeating in a 16 day cycle.

Researchers speculate the signals could be generated by the interaction between different types of stars, their orbits, and weather.

Scientists say they hope that studying and understanding the origins and causes of these radio bursts can help astronomers learn more about the universe.
