Thanks to Blinkist for sponsoring this episode. The first 100 people to go to http://Blinkist.com/SciShowSpace are going to get unlimited access for 1 week to try it out. You’ll also get 25% off if you want the full membership. Scientists picked up two unusual signals that seemed to be coming up from the ground instead of down from space. They're still working on understanding why, but despite what you may have heard, they aren't evidence for a parallel universe where time runs backwards. SciShow has a spinoff podcast!
