More Mystery Radio Bursts discovered By Astronomers

The Milky Way seen from the Siloli desert in Bolivia near Uyuni and Atacama. Because of the arid climate and high altitude, it is one of the best places on earth to photograph the stars.

Astronomers has discovered more of those mystery radio bursts also knows as FRBs from outside the Milky Way Galaxy.

Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME) telescope, scientists no doubt has discovered up to 13 different mystery radio bursts. Amongst  were 6 repeat bursts from the same location in a galaxy 1.5 billion light years away.

Upon recording its lowest frequencies which runs up to  400MHZ to 800 MHZ. It recorded that, every single burst is over 25 million times more energy than the sun.

This discovery came to light around July to August 2018 where CHIME has said that the project hasn’t started exploring it full potentials , alluding that many more burst are still yet to be discovered.

The origin and nature of blast of radio wave is still unknown. According to scientists hypothesise, its result may have come from a quick whirling neutron star that may have strongly being magnetized or it wad as a result of magnetstar.
