Noises emanating from deep in outer space, traveling billions of billions of lightyears, have researchers questioning who may be behind them.

These fast radio bursts (or FRBs) come from the other side of the cosmos and were recently captured by a Canadian telescope.

Since these repeating, low-frequency signals been observed once before, it may help researchers discover where it's coming from.

For more on these intriguing discoveries, KCBS' Jeff Bell and Patti Reising spoke with Seth Shostak, the senior astronomer and director of the Center for SETI Research.
