Never-before-obtained observations of a periodic fast radio burst revealed surprising results that have upended expectations.
The CHIME collaboration announced the detection of 535 fast radio bursts (FRBs), the biggest haul from a single survey ever.
Scientists discovered that so-called "giant radio pulses" coincide with X-rays, suggesting they are hundreds of times more energetic than previously thought.
What astronomers found in the most precise time measurement of a fast radio burst ever captured.
It turns out that the first fast radio burst (FRB) ever found in the Milky Way is not a one-off.
"This new burst that we detected is about 1,000 times brighter than any other radio burst ever seen from a magnetar.”
“This is the big breakthrough that the field has been waiting for since astronomers discovered fast radio bursts in 2007.”
Harvard astronomers take on some enticing what-if scenarios.
Defying easy explanation, it turns out that FRB 121102 is really 11 bursts, not one.
