Surprising New Features of Mysterious Fast Radio Bursts Defy Current Understanding
Fast Radio Bursts – A Puzzling and Deepening Mystery
An international team of scientists reveals an evolving, magnetized environment and surprising source location for deep-space fast radio bursts – observations that defy current understanding.
Fast radio bursts (FRBs) are millisecond-long cosmic explosions that each produce the energy equivalent to the sun’s annual output. Their perplexing nature continues to surprise scientists more than 15 years after the deep-space pulses of electromagnetic radio waves were first discovered. Now, newly published research only …
