I was reading Science News today and an article by Ron Cowen caught my eye. It is called, "Tuned in to new noise from the cosmos."
Apparently, three years ago scientists in Texas launched seven balloon-borne radio receivers in search of a faint radio signal from the warming of interstellar space caused by early stars. To their surprise, they received a booming signal a full six times louder than their wildest prediction. One intriguing suggestion is that the noise could be signals generated by the first super-massive black holes. Another is that it could be caused by the explosive death of the first generation of stars.
If this has awakened your curiosity, I encourage you to check out the link to the article, or go directly to some of the data. Then, comment here on this blog to tell us what you think/have discovered. Oh, and the project is named ARCADE, which stands for "absolute radiometer for cosmology, astrophysics, and diffuse emission." I love acronyms.
