Mystery Roar from Faraway Space Detected

LONG BEACH, Calif. -- Space is typically thought of as a very quiet place. But one team of astronomers has found a strange cosmic noise that booms six times louder than expected.

The roar is from the distant cosmos. Nobody knows what causes it.

This is very interesting. I hope the astronomers will be able to find out more about what's causing this sound.


There was a better way to fly it was called Concorde

Quoting MadameConcorde (Thread starter):
what's causing this sound

Clarification: This is a radio frequency signal not a sound as we typically understand sound...

Got more than a little annoyed at how they kept referring to it as a "roar" and a "sound" in that article. Once was enough - we get it!

The article was also rather non-detailed. Ah well, hopefully more info will appear about it soon.



How can I be an admiral without my cap??!

Slightly more information in this NASA article ...

I get the impression this is general background noise in a region rather than specific point in the sky.
