The leading hypotheses right now are that these signals result from the most volatile and explosive events in the Universe – supermassive black holes coughing up cosmic material; explosions of superluminous supernovae; or rotating magnetars – a type of neutron star that pummels everything around it with intense magnetic fields.

But this is all just speculation, based on the assumption that such powerful signals would originate from the most powerful events we’ve ever detected.
