Scientists listen for mysterious signal from space

GREEN BANK OBSERVATORY, W.Va. (WDBJ7) Astronomers recently announced a new discovery: a mysterious signal from a galaxy 3 billion light years away. This intense burst of radio waves was one of dozens of similar signals, totally random and totally unexplained.

Under a solid West Virginia sky, this radio telescope searches the universe. It’s untroubled by the clouds, because what it sees are radio waves, falling all around us like the rain.

“There’s a whole invisible universe out there that we can’t see with our eyes,” explains Green Bank Staff Scientist Ryan Lynch.
