Mysterious Space Signal Indicates “Missing Matter” in…They have only ever detected a few of these types of signals. And apparently this one is changing the scientific modeling of a lot of astronomy departments. Basically an FRB is a fast radio burst. They still do not know for sure where they come from but the majority of astronomers think they come from pulsars. However, there is debate amongst the astronomy and space fan communities alike.
CSIRO’s Parkes radio telescope, which has been used to confirm a population of Fast Radio Bursts, is shown superimposed on an image showing the distribution of gas in our Galaxy. An artist’s impression of a single fast radio burst is shown located well away from the Galactic plane emission. Fast radio bursts are a new population of radio source located at cosmological distances. Credit: Swinburne Astronomy Productions
