The burst has a duration of only a few milliseconds.
Engineering at the University of Swinburne in Australia, scientists have detected a mysterious radio bursts, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to the Correspondent.
The mysterious and almost invisible space signals FRB 171019 was recorded among the fast radio bursts. Initially, the astronomers spent about 12 thousand hours in search of quick repeated bursts.
After the failure, the scientists switched to space exploration with radio telescopes green Bank in the US and the Parkes Observatory in Australia.
In green Bank spotted two weak signal. This proves that a repeating radio bursts are more common than previously thought. It turned out that many of a single, short bursts are repeated. Previously they were outside the range of the instruments used.
Discovered FRB 171019 590 times weaker than was earlier surge ASKAP. However, he lasts only a few milliseconds, and emits into space as much energy as the Sun emits in a few tens of thousands of years. The origin of these bursts is unknown. Thereof and theories is the work of extraterrestrial civilizations.
