Mysterious signals called fast radio bursts (FRB) are from deep space and could be evidence of advanced alien technology, according to a study Australian scientists published Monday.
The study concluded that FRB could be generated by advanced aliens. FRB are millisecond long pulses of radio light originating from extremely deep space. They are roughly one billion times more luminous than anything ever detected in our own Milky Way galaxy.
Other research has previously suggested that FRBs might be leakage from extremely technologically advanced aliens using planet-sized transmitters to power interstellar probes in distant galaxies. The FRB’s level of power could plausibly be used to push payloads of a million tons of probes or spacecraft to extremely high speeds using interstellar light sails.
Radio astronomers detected numerous milliseconds fast radio bursts, from various parts of space. FRB 121102 was particularly intriguing to scientists, as the signal sporadically repeated and scientists have long thought that a repeating signal could be an indicator of an intelligent alien civilization.
Scientists estimate that the odds of humanity being the only civilization in the universe are less than one chance in about “10 billion trillion.”

The scientists also had the same fears about the early problems of figuring out what the things deemed "quasars" were about. Now, these scientists are more mature AND actually looking for life out there. So while more savvy in that area, they can't help wondering if this isn't the big one.
From the OP source: "Other research has previously suggested that FRBs might be leakage from extremely technologically advanced aliens using planet-sized transmitters to power interstellar probes in distant galaxies.

So, here you go, folks, an explanation for UFOs here and now, be they complex probes or crewed. Now, if they would only get around to wondering if those pulses are actually the tell-tale signs of the actual ships, in retro fire as they approach.

The fact that they caught one of these actually repeating is very interesting.

The last line in the video destroys the argument that Aliens couldn't reach us. It says, if this tech exists and is used, it could carry passengers throughout interstellar or even intergalactic distances.

The reason that alien's are contacting us now is because we finally have a president who can handle interstelar diplomacy. Thank God President Trump is in office and not that Kenyan born imposter (King Hussein Obama).
Its probably an invitation to join some broader galactic federation.
It makes me proud to be american.

im guessing its a very high tech communication signal that has terabytes of information in it that we cant or do not have the tech to catch it and decode it
and i want to add that the signal is sent randomly in all directions because they dont know where is the location of other civilizations
