Unidentified Cosmic Radio Bursts Baffle Astronomers

“We have uncovered four millisecond-duration radio transients all more than 40° from the Galactic plane.”

- Dan Thornton, Ph.D., Univ. of Manchester, U. K.

“We do not have an explanation for these radio bursts. It's something we just have not conceived of before - or there is no precedent for having seen anything like it.”

- James Cordes, Ph.D., Astronomer, Cornell University

 Parkes Radio Telescope, Australia, where “A Population of Fast Radio Bursts at Cosmological Distances,”  was studied by astronomer Dan Thornton and international colleagues and published in Science on July 5, 2013. The radio signals have come from between 6 to 11 billion light-years away in this particular matter universe aged 13.8 billion light-years. Image by CSIRO.

July 26, 2013  Ithaca, New York - Earlier this year, astronomers at the University of Auckland in New Zealand calculated there are around 100 billion habitable Earth-like planets in our Milky Way galaxy alone.

From Harvard University to University of Auckland, New Zealand, astronomers,  the estimate of habitable Earth-like planets in our Milky Way galaxy alone keeps rising - now as high as 100 billion. And there are billions of galaxies in this universe.
