Australian scientists find 'spooky' spinning object in Milky Way
BBC: 'Australian scientists say they have discovered an unknown spinning object in the Milky Way that they claim is unlike anything seen before.
'The object - first discovered by a university student - has been observed to release a huge burst of radio energy for a full minute every 18 minutes.
'Objects that pulse energy in the universe are often documented. But researchers say something that turns on for a minute is highly unusual. The team is working to understand more. The object was first discovered by Curtin University Honours student Tyrone O'Doherty in a region of the Western Australian outback known as the Murchison Widefield Array, using a telescope and a new technique he had developed.'
