You might have an image of outer space as being this vast, empty, and silent vacuum, and, to some extent, you’d be correct. But with the right instruments, you’d discover how much of a noisy party space really is. Radio waves of all kinds travel the vastness of space, taking ages even when traveling at the speed of light. And some of them naturally reach earth, giving scientists data to devour. Last week, however, a red dwarf by the name of Ross 128 in the constellation of Virgo has been sending us some rather strange signals and scientists are only too excited to find out what exactly they are. And no, they don’t think they’re from aliens.
