Record fast radio bursts detected from deep space

Thursday - October 11, 2018 8:12 am , Category : SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY
Canberra Oct 11 (IANS) Australian researchers on Thursday said they have detected a record number of radio waves from space including the closest and fastest one that may help understand the matter between galaxies.
"We ve found 20 fast radio bursts in a year almost doubling the number detected worldwide since they were discovered in 2007 " said Ryan Shannon from the Swinburne University of Technology in Victoria.
Shannon led the report on the signals detected with a high-powered telescope in Western Australia Xinhua news agency reported.
The flashes of radio waves come from all over the sky and last for just milliseconds and while their exact causes are not yet known they are thought to come from the other side of the universe and involve incredible energy equivalent to the amount released by the sun in 80 years said the researchers.
The bursts also travel for billions of years and occasionally pass through clouds of gas said study co-author Dr Jean-Pierre Macquart from Curtin University.
The next challenge for the researchers whose findings were reported in scientific journal Nature is to pinpoint the locations of bursts on the sky.
