"Something has breathed new life into a faraway cosmic mystery machine and caused it to repeatedly hurl tremendous amounts of energy into the void."
"It’s not clear exactly what that object is, but scientists refer to the observable phenomenon as a fast radio burst: a fleeting but extremely powerful blast of radio waves. In this case, astronomers caught a rapid stream of radio bursts coming from a galaxy about three billion light-years away."
So what is causing these bursts? Is it other life?
Imagine the bands of each frequency sent by these objects lasting milliseconds stretched out over minutes. Imagine each of these bands portrayed by digital and acoustic instruments. Competing to be heard. Playing different speeds. Different timbres. All in hopes that they will meld and form discovery. Would they like us to find them?
Imagine the travel through the cosmos to get here. Imagine the tragedy and the beauty.
