Source Of Weird Intergalactic Radio Signals ID'd

2020-01-07 04:01:02

Astronomers have traced the signal of an enigmatic repeating fast radio burst for only the second time. According to CNN, its source is located in a spiral galaxy similar to Earth's, not so far away. Fast radio bursts, or FRBs, are millisecond-long bursts of radio waves in space. Individual radio bursts emit once and don't repeat. Repeating fast radio bursts are known to send out short energetic radio waves multiple times. Multiple individual fast radio bursts in past years have been traced back to their sources in other galaxies. However, those have yet to shed light on what created them. Understanding fast radio bursts can also help astronomers learn more about the universe.
