NASA traces source of fast radio bursts sending signals to Earth
Don’t panic, but mysterious sources have been sending radio signals to Earth for years. Now, scientists have tracked down some of their origins — and they were surprised by what they found.
And no, it’s still not aliens.
Using NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have traced the locations of five deep space signals known as fast radio bursts (FRBs). In a thousandth of a second, these powerful blasts generate as much energy as the sun does in an entire year.
Around 1,000 FRBs have been detected since the first one was discovered in 2001, but they are notoriously difficult to track because they disappear in an instant and without a trace. Only 15 of them have been tracked to specific galaxies.
Scientists are interested in tracking where these intense pulses are coming from so they can determine what kind of cosmic events trigger them.

Apple mega deal: Tech titan launches huge Sunnyvale expansion that could accommodate thousands
Apple has struck a deal that will enable the tech titan to dramatically broaden its Silicon Valley presence by leasing a half-dozen big office buildings in Sunnyvale’s Pathline Park office complex.
The iPhone maker has leased 701,000 square feet of office space in the tech complex, which totals 1.3 million square feet and sits on 42 acres in a section of Sunnyvale called Peery Park, according to four commercial property experts familiar with Apple’s leasing agreement with park developer and owner Irvine Co.
This appears to be the largest South Bay office lease in either 2020 or so far in 2021, according to a review of quarterly reports from commercial real estate firms. That would also mean that the just-signed transaction is the largest South Bay lease since the onset of the coronavirus.
