On Thursday, the researchers who all are from Australia said that they have now detected a record number of radio waves which are from space. This also includes the closet as well as the fastest one which will help in understanding the matter that lies between the galaxies.
According to Ryan Shannon, who is from the Swinburne University of Technology in Victoria, said that they had found 20 fast radio bursts in a year. This burst is said to be near to double as it was detected worldwide since the year 2007. As per the report, Shannon has led to the report on the signals that were detected with high powered telescopes in Western Australia.
When the first radio burst has occurred, it is said to be the most mysterious phenomena in the universe. These bursts give out a large amount of energy that is said to be equal to Sun in 80 years. These all bursts come from an unknown source. Some of them has even suggested that they have emitted from extraterrestrial intelligence.
As per the scientists of Harvard University did the study said that during the last year that these leaks are from vast transmitters which are usually shooting at light sail ships that push them across the universe.
In a new study, it shows that they have detected about 19 undiscovered FRBs. GRBs are said to be intense emissions of radio light that can pack much energy than the Sun. Ryan Shannon along with his team has been searching for FRBs in the skies of Australian Square Kilometer Array Pathfinder (ASKAP). This network is of 36 radio dishes in Western Australia.
It has been seen that this systematic hunt has already turned 20 FRBs. Today, in the journal Nature, the reports of this study has been published. The success rate of the team is said to be due to the two factors. As per study co-author Keith Bannister who is of Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) as said by Australia’s national science agency.
The telescope that is used in this study has got a field view of 30 square degrees, which is said to be about 100 times larger than the full moon. Bannister says it in a statement. With the help of telescope’s dish antennas, they have observed about 240 square degrees which are said to be about 1,000 times of the area of the full moon.
