Mysterious Radio Signal From Space Repeating Once Every 16 Days

Remember how we told you about that weird radio signal that was coming from space a little while ago? You know the one that was coming from a galaxy nearby that was similar to ours? Well it would seem that not only are we receiving signal but it is repeating every 16.35 days.

FRB’s or Fast Radio Bursts are signals that happen usually more sporadically. But these have been able to be calculated almost to the hour. Over the course of four days, the signal would release a burst or two each hour. Then, it would go silent for another 12 days. The repeating signal has been traced to a galaxy that is about 500 million light years away.
