However, this newly discovered fast radio burst (FRB) reportedly repeated itself every hour for four days, then went silent for 12 days, repeating in a 16 day cycle.

Researchers speculate the signals could be generated by the interaction between different types of stars, their orbits, and weather.

Scientists say they hope that studying and understanding the origins and causes of these radio bursts can help astronomers learn more about the univers
