NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has yet again, helped researchers in discovery, in looking for a fast radio burst (FRB) or a "deep space radio signal source which has been unexplained for years now. The mysterious and disappearing source of the radio signal is now discovered to be coming from a distant galaxy, which is young and still forming.

IN SPACE - MARCH 3: (FILE PHOTO) In this image released by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the Hubble Space Telescope is backdropped against black space as the Space Shuttle Columbia, with a crew of seven astronauts on board, eases closer March 3, 2002 in order to latch its 50-foot-long robotic arm onto a fixture on the giant telescope. NASA plans to replace the Hubble telescope with the new James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) and plans to deorbit the Hubble telescope sometime in 2010. According to Anne Kinney, division director of astronomy and physics at NASA headquarters, NASA states August 1, 2003 that it is firmly committed to the new JWST, a deep-space observatory due for launch in 2011 on a European Ariane 5 rocket.

Deep space radio signals appear like phenomenons in the present world, especially as it aims to bring new knowledge and information about the cosmic entities around us which are still unknown. Thanks to the Hubble Space Telescope's technology, scientists can pinpoint locations and produce discoveries to learn more about what is around us.

Humans still have a lot to learn about space, and the various discoveries by NASA, along with other global space agencies contribute to the growth of knowledge of the entities around us. Recently, a faint humming sound was discovered by NASA's Voyager-1, and it aims to explain more of the phenomenon, especially as it came as a surprise for those who witnessed it.

In this handout image released from the Hubble Space Telescope the Whirlpool Galaxy is seen , April 25, 2005 released for the Hubble 15th anniversary. Nasa's Space Telescope has obited the Earth for 15 years and has taken more than 700,000 images of the comos. This image is one of the sharpest images Hubble has ever produced, taken with the newest camera.

A humming sound is one thing, and a fast radio burst is another, with both having their degree of importance and relevance in the current society as humans continue to learn more about space. According to a research paper pre-published on arXiv, NASA researchers have elaborated on a newly discovered FRB from several distant galaxies.

To date, there were five FRBs or deep space radio signal sources that were located by the NASA Hubble Space Telescope, which was a massive achievement of the space agency. Before, FRBs would make its radio signal available, then disappear without a trace, leaving scientists and researchers baffled on where it came from. 

Why are FRB discoveries Relevant in Society?

NASA's Hubble has given a massive development to the case of mysterious FRBs and deep space radio signals in the world of astronomy today, especially as it reveals distant galaxies around Earth. Moreover, it has discovered of nearby galaxies which resonate with these radio signals are considered to be young and only beginning their life cycle.

The FRB discoveries aim to learn more of the phenomenons and happenings around the Earth, and not only in the Milky Way galaxy or the current universe the world belongs to. The Hubble's help in delivering new information helps in escalating space knowledge of humans, which are still considered to be limited and barely touching its surface.
