A team of German and Brazilian astronomers has discovered another design feature in gamma-ray burst events. They demonstrated that very high energy cosmic rays arriving from the center of the Milky Way Galaxy are the remnants of several gamma-ray burst events that occurred near the galactic center about a million years ago. They also determined that gamma-ray burst events occur about once every million years in the Milky Way Galaxy. Since galactic gamma-ray burst events would prove deadly for human life, the timing of humanity’s arrival and the maturation of human civilization must be fine-tuned to avoid such events.
