Unknown objects at the heart of the Milky Way are beaming radio signals, then mysteriously disappearing

The radio telescope at the Parkes Observatory at sunset near the town of Parkes, Australia, July 15, 2019.Stefica Nicol Bikes/Reuters Mysterious radio waves emanating from the center of the galaxy have astronomers stumped. Four objects have briefly emitted radio signals that don't resemble any known type of star. Scientists think each of the four signals could come from a new type of object unknown to astronomy.

Mysterious radio waves are radiating from an unknown object at the heart of the Milky Way, astronomers say

The radio telescope at the Parkes Observatory at sunset near the town of Parkes, Australia July 15, 2019. Stefica Nicol Bikes/Reuters Astronomers detected mysterious radio waves from the center of the galaxy that vary dramatically and seem to shut off at random. The waves' origin is unknown, so they hint at the existence of a new type of celestial object. The signal doesn't look like the kind that comes from stars, planets, or even dead stars. Mysterious radio waves are emanating f...

Photos show electrons from galaxies about a billion light-years away creating 2 'dancing ghosts' in the sky

An annotated image of PKS 2130-538, nicknamed the "dancing ghosts." Jayanne English/EMU/Dark Survey Matter/Insider Scientists looked deep into the universe to find a structure that looked like two dancing ghosts. The "ghosts" are made up of electrons jetting out of "radio galaxies," the scientists found. The unusual shape of the clouds has "baffled" scientists, one expert told Insider. See more stories on Insider's business page. Researchers have discovered a cosmic phenomenon that loo...

Researchers created a 'Google Map' of the universe, with a million newly discovered galaxies

A map of the universe created with the help of the CSIRO Rapid ASKAP Continuum Survey (or RACS). CSIRO Astronomers have mapped about a million previously undiscovered galaxies beyond the Milky Way. To make the map, referred to as "the Google Map of the Universe," the team used radio telescopes to scour the night sky. The team surveyed 83% of the sky in just 10 days.  You can take a tour of the 3-D map below.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Astronomers have mapped about...
