The discovery of the second repetitive fast radio burst raises new questions

An international team of astronomers has detected a second, continuously active, fast radio burst, raising questions about the nature of the mysterious phenomena.

fast radio blasts (FRBs) are short, intense flashes of radio frequency emissions, lasting within milliseconds. This phenomenon was discovered in 2007 by graduate student David Narkevich and his supervisor Duncan Lorimer. The source of these highly energetic events is a mystery, but gradually evidence of their nature is being gathered.
