Astronomers have revealed details of mysterious signals emanating from a
distant galaxy, picked up by a telescope in Canada. The precise nature
and origin of the blasts of radio waves is unknown.

There are a number of theories about what could be causing them. They

of observers, some form of alien spaceship.
