Space laser coming from a distance of 5 billion light years

Astronomers have identified a space laser approaching Earth at a distance of 5 billion light years from Earth.

A powerful radio wave called Mega Messer was detected by a laser mounted by the MeerKAT telescope in the Northern Cape of South Africa.

According to astronomers, this record-breaking megamasser is the farthest megamasser ever discovered, at a distance of about 5 billion light years from Earth.

This light coming from Mega Messer has covered a distance of 58 trillion billion kilometers towards the earth.

MegaMesser is a very bright micro radio wave that is technically very different from a laser.

A photon coming from a laser comes in the form of visible light, while a photon coming from a microwave comes in the form of a microwave.

Record-maker Mega Messer has been dubbed ‘Niklakata’ which means ‘Big Boss’.

The discovery was made by a team of international astronomers led by Dr Marcin Glowaki at the International Center for Radio Astronomy Research in Western Australia.

Dr Glowaki said the hydroxyl mega-maser was discovered on the first night of a more than 3,000-hour-long survey.
