Strange radio waves emerge from the direction of the galactic centre

10/12/21


https://phys.org/news/2021-10-strange-r ... entre.html


Astronomers have discovered unusual signals coming from the direction of the Milky Way's center. The radio waves fit no currently understood pattern of variable radio source and could suggest a new class of stellar object.

"The strangest property of this new signal is that it is has a very high polarization. This means its light oscillates in only one direction, but that direction rotates with time," said Ziteng Wang, lead author of the new study and a Ph.D. student in the School of Physics at the University of Sydney.

"The brightness of the object also varies dramatically, by a factor of 100, and the signal switches on and off apparently at random. We've never seen anything like it."

Many types of star emit variable light across the electromagnetic spectrum. With tremendous advances in radio astronomy, the study of variable or transient objects in radio waves is a huge field of study helping us to reveal the secrets of the Universe. Pulsars, supernovae, flaring stars and fast radio bursts are all types of astronomical objects whose brightness varies.

"At first we thought it could be a pulsar—a very dense type of spinning dead star—or else a type of star that emits huge solar flares. But the signals from this new source don't match what we expect from these types of celestial objects," Mr Wang said.

The discovery of the object has been published today in the Astrophysical Journal.

Mr Wang and an international team, including scientists from Australia's national science agency CSIRO, Germany, the United States, Canada, South Africa, Spain and France discovered the object using the CSIRO's ASKAP radio telescope in Western Australia. Follow-up observations were with the South African Radio Astronomy Observatory's MeerKAT telescope.

Mr Wang's Ph.D. supervisor is Professor Tara Murphy also from the Sydney Institute for Astronomy and the School of Physics.

Professor Murphy said: "We have been surveying the sky with ASKAP to find unusual new objects with a project known as Variables and Slow Transients (VAST), throughout 2020 and 2021.

"Looking towards the center of the Galaxy, we found ASKAP J173608.2-321635, named after its coordinates. This object was unique in that it started out invisible, became bright, faded away and then reappeared. This behavior was extraordinary."

After detecting six radio signals from the source over nine months in 2020, the astronomers tried to find the object in visual light. They found nothing.

They turned to the Parkes radio telescope and again failed to detect the source.

Professor Murphy said: "We then tried the more sensitive MeerKAT radio telescope in South Africa. Because the signal was intermittent, we observed it for 15 minutes every few weeks, hoping that we would see it again.

"Luckily, the signal returned, but we found that the behavior of the source was dramatically different—the source disappeared in a single day, even though it had lasted for weeks in our previous ASKAP observations."

However, this further discovery did not reveal much more about the secrets of this transient radio source.

Mr Wang's co-supervisor, Professor David Kaplan from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, said: "The information we do have has some parallels with another emerging class of mysterious objects known as Galactic Center Radio Transients, including one dubbed the 'cosmic burper'.

"While our new object, ASKAP J173608.2-321635, does share some properties with GCRTs there are also differences. And we don't really understand those sources, anyway, so this adds to the mystery."

The scientists plan to keep a close eye on the object to look for more clues as to what it might be.

"Within the next decade, the transcontinental Square Kilometer Array (SKA) radio telescope will come online. It will be able to make sensitive maps of the sky every day," Professor Murphy said. "We expect the power of this telescope will help us solve mysteries such as this latest discovery, but it will also open vast new swathes of the cosmos to exploration in the radio spectrum."

SPOOKY SOUNDS??? You are right. There are Spooky sounds. They are coming right here from Earth. That is why I don't just sit and listen to the news. I watch it for small parts of the day. But, with the volume off so I don't have to listen to folks give their opinion. As my day use to say, Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one". If everyone is always putting their two cents in and that is to be how we do it;then why is it only a penny for your thought? I think I know. Maybe because we already know that is the value they ( meaning everyone ) gives to someone they don't agree with or because they want all the credit.

If an Alien Ship were to land half the people would want to kill everyone on board or lock them up. Some would want to steal their technology and use it for war. A couple would like to merely like to know how they heal their race. Our government and Hollywood are set on making sure we fear them as they are going to take over our world. Well, maybe someone should as we can't even run this place. Some do their best despite others and not to spite others.

I would want to greet them, even though I might crap my pants or be in awe that they were courageous to land knowing we are good at blowing shit up. Relationships and all. Look how we deal with current aliens illegal and legal from other countries.

I for one would want to shake their hand and see if I could maybe check out their ride. I could offer them a vinyl record or teach them how to set up a cool sound system. I know they might be able to play it loud, but can they play it smooth?
Spooky sounds here I can play songs about war, songs about heart ache, I could play songs about the war many wars that have occurred and not just those of the last 60 years.
I love Space. It offers what most people don't see right here. Yes there is concrete and and black top roads. There is the love some one shows in what they do for you daily though they sure aren't paid to do it. If they wee they'd probable be called a prostitute As every time a woman wants a little money someone decides they sure aren't worth a mans wage. They are correct in part of that. If I had to hire a prostitute I wouldn't want a to hire a man to do it. We already take it in the rear from the man. ( Old man humor )

I am not saying put all the women in charge. If women can have PMS ( putting up with man Shit ) If men have a problem with Mano Pause ( really he should learn to pause ), then maybe it is a child we need. ( From out of the mouth of Babes ) They can tell the truth more than ann adult who has taught them to lie by the time the are old enough to leave their house.

Time For Music : I will pay a Spooky one for all of you.....................
