Parkes observations for project P938 semester 2016OCTS_BPSR_12


We propose a targeted, 357-hr search of two nearby galaxies with high star-formation rates (SFRs) for fast radio bursts (FRBs). The primary aim of this carefully designed experiment is to test the hypothesis that FRBs are correlated with SFR, and originate in the nearby Universe at typical distances of ~100 Mpc. This hypothesis is supported by lead... more

P938 - The blind leading the blind: setting the FRB distance scale


Fast radio bursts from well beyond our Milky Way galaxy have recently been discovered using the Parkes telescope. These bursts have been seen around the world, prompting a flurry of activity among astronomers eager to uncover the origins of these enigmatic deep-space messengers. The observations that we propose will test a possible hypothesis for w... more
