Astronomers have discovered mysterious and intense signals from within our galaxy, although these are Fast radio explosions, or FRBs It only lasts for a fraction of a second, but it can be a hundred million times stronger than the sun, and despite its intensity, its origin is still largely unknown, and now astronomers have detected a fast radio signal in our Milky Way for the first time ever. In addition to being closer than any FRB Discovered before, they can finally help solve the mystery of where they came from.

And according to the British newspaper “The Independent” website, scientists have had difficulty tracking the source of such explosions because they are very short and unpredictable and originate far away, but it is clear that they are formed in the most extreme conditions in the universe, with suggested explanations that include everything from dying stars to technology. Space.

Scientists who discovered the signals said FRBs The new bursts of radio energy appear to have come from a magnetic star, or a star with a very strong magnetic field.

Kioshi Masoy, an assistant professor of physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, who led the team’s analysis of L. FRB: “There is this great ambiguity about what could produce these tremendous explosions of energy, which we have seen so far coming from midway through the universe, and this is the first time that we have been able to connect one of these strange rapid radio explosions to a single astrophysical object.”

The discovery began on April 27, when researchers using two space telescopes captured many X-ray and gamma-ray emissions from a magnetic star at the other end of our galaxy, and the next day, the researchers used two North American telescopes to observe that spot of the sky, and picked up the blast that became known. Basim FRB 200428.

In addition to being the first FRB From the Milky Way galaxy and the first to bind to a magnetic star, the explosion is the first to send emissions other than radio waves.

The research is described in three papers published in a journal Nature Today, which relied on data taken from telescopes around the world, with an international team of scientists using observations taken from equipment in Canada, the United States, China and space.

discovered FRBs For the first time in 2007, it immediately sparked a flurry of speculation about what would cause such intense explosions of energy.
