(Kelowna, Canada) -- Astronomers in Canada say they have picked up repeating radio waves from deep space.
A study in the journal Nature says the mysterious waves were discovered over the summer on a radio telescope in British Columbia.
The waves are called fast radio bursts, and this is only the second time in history that they've been discovered in deep space.
Most scientists believe the repeating radio bursts are generated by powerful astrophysical phenomena such as black holes or neutron stars, though some experts have suggested they could be evidence of advanced alien life.
Fast radio bursts were first discovered in 2015 by a radio telescope in Puerto Rico.
