This week, astronomers announce a newborn magnetar and a fast radio burst that's bursting to a beat.
Recent observations have pinpointed the location of a fifth fast radio burst, shedding light on the environs that create these powerful sources.
Astronomers have narrowed down the location of a third "fast radio burst" to a galaxy very like the Milky Way.
What causes the bizarre, extragalactic fast radio bursts we’ve detected over the last decade? An unusually bright supernova may hold the answer.
A new radio telescope has spotted scores of mysterious fast radio bursts — including the second known repeating one.
The first "fast radio burst" detected by the Canadian CHIME radio telescope is a tantalizing hint of what’s to come.
A repeating fast radio burst first detected in 2012 likely formed within a potent magnetic field — opening up the ambiguity of what caused the mysterious burst.
