Sergei Trushkin, an astronomer from the Special Astrophysical Observatory of the Russian Academy of Sciences, described why the scientists became interested in the mysterious rapid radio flashes, the so-called radio signals from extraterrestrials, and explained how the Russian telescope RATAN-600 had a unique chance to reveal their essence. "Given our modest capabilities, we expect that at best three to five such outbreaks can be recorded during the year of observation, on the other hand, even if we can find at least one event at the frequencies where the searches are conducted, this will radically change the understanding of the nature of the data signals, "- said Trushkin, speaking at the annual conference" High-Energy Astrophysics "at the IKI RAS in Moscow.
