Default Mysterious radio signals from deep space detected

ET home!!!!!

There are a number of theories about what could be causing them.

They include a neutron star with a very strong magnetic field that is spinning very rapidly, two neutron stars merging together, and, among a minority of observers, some form of alien spaceship.

Let's vote on it the democratic way!
Proposition ET 666!
Yay or Nay!

The alien spaceship theory is out, unless these aliens are all over the universe sending out the same kinds of radio bursts from the same make and model of transmitter.

You can't quite rule it out that easily.

There may be only one way of opening up a wormhole near a black hole and
this is the RF emission signature it produces.

I am more inclined to believe it is the signature of something made of
normal matter being spaghettified by a black hole or neutron star.

The repeaters must be some sort of very exotic cataclysmic variable.

The CHIME instrument that found them is in Vancouver and rather
interesting in its approach to whole sky observations.

https://chime-experiment.ca/cosmology

It is in some ways a modern hybrid of the 4C parabolic cylinder antenna
and the big field of dipoles phased array that found the first pulsars
(but with massively greater computing power available to it).

Yes, one can.

Wormholes are fantasy, sci fiction at best. They wouldn't even work as advertised.

Yes, simple enough. Some beings have figured out how to generate and
use an infinite amount of energy...

The epithet "mysterious" is a bit too sensationalist for me. "...not
yet identified the process..." seems more reasonable.

Indeed. However some people seem to enjoy mysteries. They don't
**want** to know, they enjoy not knowing. Perhaps they enjoy the
apparent freedom of not knowing because then you can ponder more
different possibilities which do not contradict what you know. Once
you do know, most of those possibilities vanish (e.g. ET's on Mars
when we learnt that the Martian canals weren't real).

The original pulsar chart recording has "LGM" written in the margin.

The pulsar explanation came later and won Professor Hewish a Nobel Prize
with Professor Ryle (for that and aperture synthesis radio astronomy).

I'm convinced the repeaters are some sort of exotic cataclysmic variable
but with the hot spot on an accretion disk round a much more compact
neutron star or black hole rather than a white dwarf.
