Astronomers detect record number of 25 radio signals from deep space – Ensenam de Ciencia

Mankind has observed the stars born and die Galaxies Moti et al Holes Negroes Swallow everything in its path, thanks to technology that has developed over time and can be increasingly improved to receive Great results. This is how science progresses. However, it surprises us with new discoveries that may seem completely otherworldly and expands the limits of our knowledge. RecentlyAnd The discovery of astronomy Confused Astronomers: Discovery of Record Scale 25 Radio signals from deep space.

It turns out Fast Radio Bursts (RFB) Very short bursts of radio waves, rarely in duration reaching milliseconds. Although they are almost rare, these gases are unusual Powerful and fiery A surprisingly large amount of energy in such a short period of time. truly, Each explosion releases more energy in milliseconds than the Sun produces in three days.

Where does this wind come from?

Although it is believed that These bursts may originate from other galaxies, its exact provenance still remains a mystery. One of the most prominent theories suggests that these bursts may be emitted by very dense astronomical material. Examples include neutron stars, black holes, pulsars and magnetars. In 2020, the possibility was raised that some of these gases could come from Our own galaxyBut without knowing exactly where, it gets worse, because we don't know where to be So “closer” to the origin of the emission.

The discovery of these 25 new radio bursts Thanks for making it possible For the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME), a state-of-the-art radio telescope is located Radio Astrophysics Laboratory. Although the main purpose of CHIME is to The expansion of the universe can be measured by observing the length of the universe A light wave passes through In neutral hydrogen, its ability to detect these fast radio bursts makes it an invaluable tool Modern Astronomy.

What exactly do they look like?

Los Repeated eruptions What was discovered was different from normal fast radio bursts. They have a long duration Long and wideHe suggested that they could Originating from different sources or less different conditions. Each of these explosions has unique characteristics such as its dispersion scale, which varies due to interactions The flash is in space with the object in its path.

Although a total of more than 1,000 fast radio bursts have been identified, only 29 of them are irregular, repeating. Ziggy Blunis is an expert on the subjectEvidence suggests that there may also have been an explosion in time become repetitive.

as Scientists Continue Research and analysis These mysterious flashes mean we're closer than ever to finally unmasking even more from it all. The secrets the universe holds.
