Astronomers Discover the First Regular Fast Radio Bursts

Astronomers have just identified a peculiar repeating pattern of fast radio bursts (FRBs) emanating from an unknown source outside our galaxy. The discovery has been described as ‘a new phenomenon in astrophysics,’ and has stunned space experts.   FRBs are...

Puzzling Fast Radio Burst Found to Repeat in a 157-Day Cycle

Astronomers have discovered a fast radio burst (FRB) activity cycle that repeats in a rather steady and predictable manner. This could mean that the unrestrained unpredictability of puzzling deep-space FRBs could, in fact, be an issue with our detection abilities.  ...

Astronomers Detected Extremely Intense Radio Bursts From Magnetar

In recent weeks, astronomers have spotted a bright, millisecond-duration radio burst emitted by a galactic magnetar called ​SGR 1935+2154​. The object is a soft gamma repeater (SGR) that is an old stellar remnant.​ The finding, which was registered by the...

Radio Signals Come From Milky Way – What’s The Source?

Astronomers detected a radio signal that's coming from the Milky Way. This signal that's been obtained is called a fast radio burst, and it only lasts for milliseconds. The radio signal was extremely brief and this means that it was...

FRBs: Natural Phenomenons or Alien Signals?

First detected in September 2018 by the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME) radio telescope, some peculiar bursts were creating ripples whose effects were seen on Earth. These oddities were found to be radio bursts that came from a galaxy...
