Mysterious fast radio bursts continue to baffle astronomers

Since 2007, mysterious signals have been reaching Earth from other galaxies — now they’ve tripled frequency, and some of them are repeating the same message.

The number of alien, repeating radio blasts astronomers have detected in deep space has just tripled.

What are they? Where do they come from? What do they mean?

Fast radio bursts (FRBs) were first discovered by Australia’s Parkes telescope in 2007. They immediately became one of the strangest mysteries of the known universe.

About 100 have been found since.

They are fleeting — but incredibly powerful — signals seemingly originating out of nowhere. And they appear to be travelling almost unbelievably vast distances.

Has another interstellar visitor been found?
https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-49676757

Yes!!!


An amateur astronomer has discovered a comet that could come from outside our Solar System.

If so, it would be the second interstellar object after the elongated body known as 'Oumuamua was identified in 2017.

The Minor Planet Center (MPC) at Harvard University has issued a formal announcement of the discovery.

The body appears to have a "hyperbolic" orbit, which would appear to indicate its origin in another planetary system.

A hyperbolic orbit is an eccentric one, where the shape deviates substantially from that of a perfect circle.

A perfect circle has an eccentricity of 0. The elliptical orbits of many planets, asteroids and comets have eccentricities between 0 and 1.

Contaminated skin-care cream leaves woman in semi-comatose state, officials say
https://www.foxnews.com/health/contaminated-skincare-cream-woman-semi-comatose-state


A woman in northern California was left in a semi-comatose state after using a skin-care cream she had ordered from Mexico that had been apparently tainted with a dangerous ingredient. According to Sacramento County Public Health, the woman fell ill in late June and had been exposed to methylmercury, a poisonous form of mercury that could cause brain and nervous system damage.

Strange alien world found to have water vapor and possibly rain clouds
https://www.nbcnews.com/mach/science/strange-alien-world-found-have-water-vapor-possibly-rain-clouds-ncna1052486
In a major first, scientists have detected water vapor and possibly even liquid water clouds that rain in the atmosphere of a strange exoplanet that lies in the habitable zone of its host star about 110 light-years from Earth.

A new study focuses on K2-18 b, an exoplanet discovered in 2015, orbits a red dwarf star close enough to receive about the same amount of radiation from its star as Earth does from our sun.

Democratic Republic of Congo: Ebola Virus Disease - External Situation Report 58
https://reliefweb.int/report/democratic-republic-congo/democratic-republic-congo-ebola-virus-disease-external-situation-73

In the past week, from 2 to 8 September, 45 new confirmed Ebola virus disease (EVD) cases, with an additional 35 deaths, have been reported from five health zones in three affected provinces in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

In the 21 days from 19 August to 8 September 2019, 57 health areas in 17 health zones reported new cases. During this period, a total of 175 confirmed cases were reported, with the majority coming from the health zones of Kalunguta (17%; n=30), Beni (17%; n=29), Mambasa (13%; n=23), and Mandima (13%; n=22). Twelve health areas that have previously been reporting cases of EVD since the beginning of the outbreak have not reported a case in more than 21 days.
