China's biggest telescope detects more than 100 'mysterious' radio signals thought to have come from three BILLION light years away
China's largest telescope has detected more than 100 mysterious radio pulses coming from a source around three billion light years from the Earth.
The strange signals are so-called fast radio bursts — rapid pulses of energy that come from unknown but high-energy sources out in space.
Researchers at the space observatory are continuing to monitor the signals, with the hope that further analysis will indicate how these radio pulses are being generated.
The unexplained signals were detected by China's Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Radio Telescope — also known as FAST — and are currently being cross-checked and analysed, Chinese Academy of Sciences researchers report.

So, if we reply to these signals, we should get a response back in 6 billion light years, then?
