A sudden and intense radio signal detected in deep space has puzzled scientists, who suspect it may have come from a super-dense star.
From fast radio bursts to pulsars and other strange signals, the alien-hunting FAST telescope has made a number of discoveries in its short life.
Each blast in the "river" of explosions lasts just a thousandth of a second but releases more energy than the sun produces in an entire year.
A newly discovered fast radio burst from within our galaxy confirms an exotic form of neutron star as one possible source of the highly energetic transmissions.
Scientists say they have found the first fast radio burst that has a steady repeating cycle.
Scientists discovered that fast radio bursts were not observed at lower frequencies, which was "really unexpected."
Sky survey vastly expands the number of FRBs—radio signals produced by hugely energetic but unknown sources.
Scientists don't know what causes the weird signals.
The signals come from deep space.
Physicists discuss the latest discovery of 15 radio bursts coming from a galaxy three billion light years away.
Breakthrough Listen project observes 15 fast radio bursts coming from dwarf galaxy 3 billion light-years away.
Fast radio burst 150215 was detected in real-time with the Parkes radio telescope in Australia in 2015.
