We’ve found three new fast radio bursts (FRBs) flashing from space, and one of them is the brightest we’ve ever seen.
FRBs are some of the most difficult to spot phenomena in the universe. They are powerful blasts of radio waves that flash from distant space for milliseconds and then disappear – and we have no idea what causes them.
Because they are fleeting, we’ve only detected 33 FRBs so far. Now, two groups of researchers have seen
