Astronomers published in The Astrophysical Journal, that young neutron stars 6,200 light years from the center of a galaxy called FRB 121102, are the source of mysterious fast radio bursts detected on Earth.
Some experts speculated that Cosmic Radio Bursts could be a sign of aliens.

Scientist Shriharsh Tendulkar of McGill University in Montreal, said:

‘The Hubble observations allow us to get a very sharp image.”

Dale Frail of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Socorro, New Mexico, explains:



“It’s an extraordinary galaxy. Relative to its small size, it’s making stars at a prolific rate.”
