A group of artificial intelligence scientists have discovered mysterious signals from far-away space that last less than a millisecond and resemble short and fast radio waves.

Astronomers from Swinburne University in Australia have built an automated system to capture these signals, which have traveled incredible distances through deep space and are often very old, and scientists called these signals “rapid radio splash.”

Astronomer Wael Farah used his system to detect five fast signals in space. “It’s amazing to discover that these signals, which went halfway through the universe, are very difficult to detect,” he said.

The first mysterious signals in space were mistakenly traced back to 2007 when an explosion signal was seen in radio astronomy data collected in 2001.

A recent explosion from a spiral galaxy 7.9 billion years ago has been spotted. In 2017, Professor Avi Loeb of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in the United States argued that these signals could be the result of the development of advanced alien technology.

He predicted that these signals could be the result of leaks from alien transmitters and instead of being designed to communicate, they are likely to be used to propel giant light-sailing spacecraft.

Professor Loeb, who discussed the idea in an article in The Astrophysical Journal Letters, said: “The artificial origin deserves reflection and scrutiny and could be the reason for these strange references.”
