Radio observations have turned up evidence of a cloud of hot plasma near — or even in — the solar system. But its distance estimate is still up for debate.
Recent observations have pinpointed the location of a fifth fast radio burst, shedding light on the environs that create these powerful sources.
The LOFAR survey, based in The Netherlands, has released a bonanza of new sources. And with only 2% of the sky covered so far, this is only the beginning.
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 new survey promises the most complete map of radio-emitting celestial sources ever made. It will reveal thousands of new objects after seven years of observation.
It's not easy to get to the Murchison Radio Observatory in Western Australia. Being in one of the most remote regions of the country means there's hardly any radio interference that might otherwise compromise the astronomical observations. It's one of the most radio-quiet zones on the planet.
