FRBs are powerful jets of energy that has mysterious origins. The research team performed a survey of eight FRBs, from which they were able to determine that five of them originated from a spiral arm in their host galaxies.
Until now, the source of Fast Radio Bursts was a mystery. Now astronomers at multiple institutions have pinpointed the FRB spotted in the Milky Way and conclude it most likely was generated by a magnetar.
A Milky Way magnetar called SGR 1935+2154 may have just massively contributed to solving the mystery of powerful deep-space radio signals that have vexed astronomers for years.
Astronomers in Canada have detected a mysterious volley of radio waves from far outside our galaxy. What corner of the universe these powerful waves come from and the forces that produced them remain unknown.
Australian researchers using a CSIRO radio telescope in Western Australia have nearly doubled the known number of 'fast radio bursts'— powerful flashes of radio waves from deep space.
Using artificial intelligence algorithms, researchers with the Breakthrough Listen project discovered 72 previously undetected fast radio bursts from a still-unknown source some 3 billion light years away.
The Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME), a revolutionary new radio telescope, recently made its first-ever detection of a possible Fast Radio Burst (FRB).
An initiative set up to find signs of intelligent life in the universe has detected a series of mysterious radio signals from a dwarf galaxy 3 billion light years away.
Radio astronomers have recently detected three of FRB events, including the brightest ever recorded.
Using the Green Bank Telescope, researchers with Breakthrough Listen recently detected repeating fast radio bursts coming from a distant galaxy.
Australian researchers have detected three of Fast Radio Bursts in just six months using MOST telescope in Canberra, Australia. In doing so, they were able to confirm that these FRBs really do come from outer space.
