I know that. It doesn't change the fact that light is constant. This is special relativity until proven otherwise. We measure light at this constant speed. How else would we know stellar distances? Ofcourse we utilize light years.. these are great distances in which the 0s are staggering in the absence of such. Go read up on special relativity then come talk to me youngin

186,000 miles per second. Constant everywhere in this universe until we can agree on something better with the appropriate data and rigors of time @
Let me simplify this for you.

What part of the following statement don't you understand?

"Due to its unknown origin, it is possible that the signal traveled at speeds unfathomable to humans."

Wheres the data? Its possible ..its plausible but I dont see any data. I see what he typed and your champion quote but.. Wheres the data? We can talk about possibles all day sir ..& certainly so in an uncertain universe

Although my statement was posed as a question and is currently unfalsifiable, I never said it was a fact, hypothesis nor a theory.

I never made a claim. It was a simple observation. No data is needed.

From what I heard on NPR they said this ain't the 1st one that they got!
from what read in the article this ain't the first


2.5 billion light years though

We could very well be the 1st life in the universe to reach this stage or maybe the last..

We def are a cancer to the universe lol why would any beings link up with us lol.. What type civilization sends signals across the universe the Bogdon Void is prime example of a g
Galactic Neighborhood that answered a signal lol

Don't forget the fact that if it really was 2.5 billion years old, then what are the odds that this civilization still exist...

You said we can only quantize a light year. That's not a true statement.

Who or what ever sent that signal did so 2.5 billion years ago. So to send one back would take even longer due to universal expansion. Good luck trying to communicate, if they or it still even exists.

There's some issues with that. Light is constant. It's the same speed everywhere in the universe
According to our knowledge , I think they found some examples where this doesn’t apply. That theory isn’t 100% accurate but rounded to meet the conclusion almost like saying 99.9998 and 99.9997 it’s not always the same measurement but close enough.
People don’t realize many theories that are still taught in school even prestige colleges have been tested in the past 10-15 years and broken. But it’s what been taught so many years some places still follow through.

Isnít light years based around distance? Not actually time?
Its how far light can travel in 1 year

billions of years (with human tech). we can see 35 billion years in the past, so its crazy to think something like a massive explosion happened a million years ago and we're just seeing/hearing it. so who knows what going on in space right now. it takes to long for the info to get to us
Can you prove the science to me of a billion years? Or even a million years?

Nerds going crazy!

I think we can all agree itís far as sh*t and we will never know where the signal came from

Still very cool

Imagine a body of water right now dropping a small rock in that body of water. When you see the ripples thats how radio waves work. Now imagine hearing your favorite dead rapper having a live interview before they passed away over the radio. That would make you panic and it would make me panic. But IMO we are not the only living planet in this universe and we understand how life on earth came to be and somewhat of a good understanding of the timeframe.But that dont mean we understand life on other planets outside of our solar system.

Canadian astronomers have reportedly discovered a repetitive radio signal some 2.5 billion light-years away from Earth ó only the second example known to mankind.

A telescope in British Columbia, otherwise known as Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME), detected 13 pulses ó or fast radio bursts (FRBs) ó in July and August, according to a Monday report from Nature, a British scientific journal.

The findings were announced by Deborah Good, an astronomer at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, at a meeting of the American Astronomical Society in Washington on Wednesday.

"Look! We see FRBs," she said of the cosmic flashes, which remain a mystery to astronomers. Before they were spotted over the summer, astronomers reportedly found between 50 and 60 examples of the radio bursts.

Good said that "if we had 1,000 examples, we would be able to say many more things about what FRBs are like."

The CHIME telescope found, as phrased by Nature.com, "the second known FRB that repeats, meaning that the radio flashes re-appear at the same point in the sky." The first FRB that repeats was detected in 2012.

The majority of the FRBs discovered by the telescope showed signs of "scattering," Phys.org reported ó which led the CHIME team to believe the radio bursts are "powerful astrophysical objects."

"That could mean in some sort of dense clump like a supernova remnant," Cherry Ng, an astronomer at the University of Toronto, told the news outlet. "Or near the central black hole in a galaxy. But it has to be in some special place to give us all the scattering that we see."

Astronomers' studying of FRBs can teach those who study more about where the bursts come from, and whether that region in its galaxy is home to turbulent gas.

"Until now, there was only one known repeating FRB.," astronomer Ingrid Stairs, also a member of the CHIME team, said. "Knowing that there is another suggests that there could be more out there. And with more repeaters and more sources available for study, we may be able to understand these cosmic puzzles ó where they're from and what causes them."


Slapped because of the source. We already know they lie about dumb sh*t.

The speed of light applies to light in a vacuum. it will always be the same in a vacuum. if it's moving through other mediums then yes it will be slightly altered

What's crazy to me is when we look up in the sky every day and night, we looking at the past!

We know it's other stuff out there but they prolly looking at us from their future and our past so we can never connect in the present
