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.”
Magnetars may be the exploded remains of star mergers.
A runaway star was "the smoking gun" that explains why some dying stars form black holes, while others become magnetars.
