Scientists detect fastest-ever fast radio bursts, lasting just 10 millionths of a second


Astronomers just found the fastest known radio pulses from outside our galaxy hiding in 30 minutes’ worth of radio telescope data. The findings, published Oct. 19 in the journal Nature Astronomy, could help researchers uncover where these mysterious blips come from.

Fast radio bursts (FRBs) are extremely short, high-energy pulses of electromagnetic radiation that usually originate outside our galaxy. Most last for between one-thousandth of a second and three seconds, during which they emit as much energy as the sun throws out in a day.
