Scientists figured out how to find the source of mysterious radio signals from space

The Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME) is expanding its useFor a more accurate

FRBs are bright millisecond "flashes" in the radio spectrum that occur at cosmological distances and are detected by radio telescopes of unknown nature.It takes them several billion years to reach Earth. FRBs carry the "fingerprint" of material that lies between galaxies and stars.That is why they are so important for studying these environments.

Although the general consensus among scientists is that FRBs are of natural origin, they remain a mysterious astronomical phenomenon, according to a SETI press release.Their high degree of spectral-temporal structure and transient nature make them an ideal "testing ground" for reliable signal processing systems designed to search for technosignatures.

With the ability to detect 10 to 100 times more fast radio bursts than all other telescopes combined, CHIME has had a radical impact on the study of FRBs.The telescope allowed scientists to observe short bursts with excellent temporal resolution, but CHIME's limitation was its inability to identify the origin of the FRB.Outriggers will make this possible.
