Multiple models have been proposed to explain the intriguing properties of FRBs, but this new model provides one of the most detailed scenarios yet, consistent with properties of current observed FRBs.
Some galaxies are easy to find—others, like dusty galaxies with extreme star formation, are a bit harder to track down. Come to Professor Caitlin Casey’s #AAS233 talk to learn how we can find these galaxies in the “obscured early universe”!
Black holes may seem large, but not compared to the scales we’ll talk about today.
Researchers send fast radio burst terminators back in time…kind of.
Radio observations of the diffracted shadow cast by an asteroid can be used to nail down its location and determine its size and shape.
