Fast Radio Bursts

Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs) are powerful but brief pulses of radio waves that seem to originate from galaxies billions of light-years away. The phenomenon of fast radio bursts (FRBs) was discovered in 2007.

Fast radio bursts are exceedingly bright given their short duration and origin at great distances, and the scientists haven’t identified a possible natural source with any confidence, for now.
