Mysterious radio waves detected in nearby galaxy

Postby DarkUFO on Thu Apr 15, 2010 12:23 pm

An unknown object in a nearby galaxy is producing mysterious radio waves that are baffling astrophysicists.

The strange signals are unlike those of any known astronomical phenomena, the source even appears to be moving and could be something called a 'microquasar'.

There is something strange in the cosmic neighbourhood. An unknown object in the nearby galaxy M82 has started sending out radio waves, and the emission does not look like anything seen anywhere in the universe before. "We don't know what it is," says co-discoverer Tom Muxlow of Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics near Macclesfield, UK.
