According to a study, the mysterious FRBs might be rather common, and not rare as believed.

Fast Radio Bursts or FRBs have become something of a cause for those who are hoping to find signs of extraterrestrial life in the Universe. However, there are others who believe that these bursts of radio waves are simply created by the natural phenomenon we have yet to discover or understand. A team from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics has recently released a new theory. One which claims that the mysterious FRBs might be as frequent as every other second.

Mysterious FRBs, More Common than Initially Believed

Two scientists part of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics revealed that their studies of the visible Universe show that the release rate of fast radio bursts could be as high as one every second. This research is based on an analysis of the mysterious fast radio bursts released by FRB 121102.
However, if the research from the Harvard-Smithsonian team is proven correct, it would appear that the theories holding the most weight are those featuring the development of an as yet undiscovered natural phenomenon.
