Strange signals from space are captured by the world’s largest radio telescope

The largest radio telescope dish in the world has apparently detected odd radio signals coming from space, although the specifics of the reports are unclear.

FAST, whose name translates to “heaven’s eye” in Mandarin, has recently gone online. It is a larger alternative to the renowned Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico, which will be shut down in 2020 due to structural issues.

And while it has several objectives, which is the principal one? alien intelligence is still being sought after. But as of yet, nobody is referring to these signals as alien. In truth, the plot of the story itself is somewhat convoluted.

Astronomers poring over FAST data from 2019 found two sets of suspicious signals. In addition, the telescope also picked up a different signal from a system known to have an exoplanet earlier in 2022.

Reports on those signals come from a June 14 Science and Technology Daily report that was deleted from the outlet’s site but remains posted on WeChat, a Chinese social media app. And so far, those are the only reports — no preprints or published studies have been released on the mystery signals. So what do we know?
