Parkes observations for project P871 semester 2017APRS_BPSR_06


Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs) are bright, millisecond-duration radio pulses hypothesized to originate at cosmological distances. To date, one FRB has been seen to repeat but their origins remain a puzzling mystery. Some have proposed FRBs come from Crab-like pulsar giant pulses or periods of high activity of distant magnetars. Both mechanisms would gene... more

P871 - A follow-up campaign for fast radio bursts


Within the last few years a brand new type of radio source called a Fast Radio Burst (FRB) was discovered using the Parkes Telescope. FRBs are bright, short radio pulses that appear to only flash once, and only a dozen FRB sources have ever been detected. It is estimated that over 10,000 FRB events are occurring over the whole sky every day! The so... more
