A new study published this week in the Astrophysical Journal details the discovery of radio waves that appear to be unlike anything the experts have studied before.

The radio waves were observed using the ASKAP radio telescope located in the desert of Western Australia.

“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,” Wang said.

“The strangest property of this new signal is that it has a very high polarization. This means its light oscillates in only one direction, but that direction rotates with time,” Wang said.

“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,” he added.

Is it good music or shitty rap?  The future of the universe could depend on the answer.

I’ll guess pulsar being sucked into a black hole so that it gives seemingly random pulses of radio waves.

Well a quick Google search shows the center of the Milky Way is over 25,000 light years away, so whatever made those waves did so while we were still well within the stone age.

Could this just be the Tesla that's still floating around out there somewhere?  I think they left the radio on.

If they’re from the center of the Milky Way than they had to have been transmitted a long, long time ago….

It's morse code. The first part tells you to set your decoder ring to B-2, then you'll figure it out.

12 11 2 3 25 11 4 24 16 25 18 23 21 6 24 3 25 24 5 9 19 4 18 23 11
Just as a side note bit of trivia, the announcer should have said B-12 (looking at the screen grabs) in order to have worked.
