A team of astronomers have discovered a “fast radio burst” (FRB) signal, mysterious flashes of millisecond wave energy emanating from the universe, that repeats itself every 157 days, as Space.com...
Ever since scientists first calculated how much matter is in the universe, they’ve been unable to find half of it. Baryonic matter — sometimes called luminous matter to distinguish it from dark...
Astronomers just detected fast radio bursts (FRB), mysterious millisecond-wave bursts of radio waves that have been puzzling astronomers for years, emanating from within our own galaxy, as Science...
Earlier this month, researchers from Cornell University announced that they’d discovered a powerful radio signal, emanating from a distant galaxy in bursts that come every 16 days. Avi Loeb, the...
Fast radio bursts (FBRs) have fascinated astronomers ever since they were first discovered in 2007. We have only begun to understand these powerful patterns of shortwave signals from outside of our...
For the second time ever, astronomers detected a bizarre, rapidly-repeating radio signal originating deep in space. A massive team of astronomers managed to trace the unusual radio burst to the arm...
After three years of tests, China is opening up its gigantic 500-meter Aperture Spherical Radio Telescope (FAST) to astronomers from all over the world, Nature reports.
In 2007, astronomers discovered a high-energy radio signal emanating from far beyond our galaxy, and because it turned up for no obvious reason, some began speculating that the signal could’ve been...
Last week, astronomers managed to trace a mysterious, fleeting radio signal back to a distant galaxy. Since then, teams from around the world have tracked down ten more. The latest was spotted by a...
Astronomers who detected a mysterious, fleeting radio signal from space finally figured out where it came from. The radio burst, which only lasted for one millisecond, originated from the outer...
