Dozens of mysterious radio pulses from a dwarf galaxy billions of light-years away have just been detected by SETI Institute's artificial intelligence technology. The nature of these radio signals is unknown.
If there is extraterrestrial life out in the cosmos, Breakthrough Listen's upgraded Parkes telescope will find it. The SETI initiative begins the hunt, sifting through billions of stars in hopes of spotting signs of aliens.
Representatives from Breakthrough Listen, a decade long $100 million project launched last year by Yuri Milner and Steven Hawking, announced that the Parkes Radio Telescope has been utilized for the initiative.
