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.



I'm watching Jeopardy. The category is worst Madonna songs. "This one from 1987 is terrible".

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.
