Astronomers intercept radio signals from the Milky Way; Where does the source come from?

(Photo: photo by Štefan Štefančík on Unsplash) Scientists have discovered radio signals from space. Astronomers have discovered a radio signal from the Milky Way. The signal obtained is called a quick radio shockthat lasts milliseconds and comes from the depth of space.

Star clusters reveal the cannibalistic past of the Milky Way

A recent study found that our home galaxy, the Milky Way, was a cannibal in earlier years, swallowing five smaller galaxies. Like Jones, the famous (if fictional) archaeologist, astrophysicist Duncan Forbes from Swinburne University in Australia, used clues from past events to reconstruct the history of our cosmic neighborhood. In this case, he used globular clusters – groups of ancient …
