Most of the fast radio bursts picked up by telescopes in the last decade or so are seen once then disappear.
This work was published today (Jan 9) in a set of papers in Nature. Since CHIME is sensitive to lower frequencies of radiation than past telescopes, it discovered that fast radio bursts appear at lower frequencies than we had previously known.
As technology improves and instruments used to study the cosmos become more and more advanced, we're answering a lot of questions about our place in the universe, but we're also coming up with entirely new ones.
FRB's were first detected accidentally in 2007, when a burst signal was spotted in radio astronomy data collected in 2001. "There are some models where intrinsically the source can't produce anything below a certain frequency", said Arun Naidu of McGillUniversity in Canada, who was part of the team that detected the signal. While most other FRBs detected were recorded at between 1400 megahertz (MHz) and 2000 MHz, these bursts were found at 400-800 MHz, far lower than ever before.
The CHIME team's recent results settles these doubts, with the majority of the 13 bursts being recorded well down to the lowest frequencies in CHIME's range. Scientists are still debating whether repeating FRBs come from the same source as the one-time flashes, or instead represent a distinct type of event.
CHIME scans the entire Northern Hemisphere every day, hopping from one spot to the next every 15 minutes. Launched in 2017, the project is a collaboration of Canadian scientists from the University of British Columbia, McGillUniversity, the University of Toronto, the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, and the National Research Council of Canada.

"It just seems completely inconceivable that there could be that many different alien civilisations all deciding to produce the same kind of signal in the same way - that just seems highly improbable". That tells us something about the environments and the sources.
Thibodeau entered the season on the hot seat, which is why he was desperately trying to keep Jimmy Butler rather than trade him. Ryan Saunders will serve as the team's interim coach while Scott Layden will remain in his role as general manager.

There will be no tax hikes to fund NYC Care, which will be financed by the city's public health budget. Mayor de Blasio is an expert at unveiling cloud-castles and proclaiming himself a master builder.
Watford manager Javi Gracia changed his entire starting lineup from the team that drew 3-3 at AFC Bournemouth last week. However, Foxes captain Morgan - who started the match - said: "I think any criticism (of Puel) would be unfair".
If the court sides with Sears, the company will go ahead with a scheduled auction of company assets January 14. But the fact that Sears has an offer that seeks to rescue it doesn't guarantee it will escape liquidation.
Having said that, there is a long way to go as many of their rights are still restricted to having a male guardianship system. This is supposed to reduce the number of Saudi Men who end marriages with their wives without telling their wives.
In addition to Russell's threats, police have issued an arrest warrant for Kelly's former manager, #JamesMason. Savage and his wife have said repeatedly that Kelly has kept their daughter from contacting them since 2016.
Schumer of NY on Monday night said any spending bill with that much wall funding "can't pass either chamber of Congress". Hundreds of thousands of federal workers face missed paychecks Friday as the shutdown drags through a third week.
It was Pederson's final gamble in a bid to mentally shake the Bears' kicker - and it worked. "I thought I hit a good ball". Foles will lead the Eagles into New Orleans on Sunday as the Birds face the Saints in the Divisional Round.
In the wake of the recent bin deaths, however, the company has suspended manufacturing until it can conceive of a safer design. A woman in her mid-30s has died after becoming trapped in a charity clothing bin in Toronto, according to overnight reports.
They shared their story with the team website in early December after Mebane returned to the team following a two-week absence. He told reporters on Wednesday that he plans to play in Sunday's AFC Divisional Round matchup against the Patriots .
Bruce Arians Named Head Coach Of The Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Leftwich even has a Bucs connection as a player, having started three games back at quarterback for Tampa Bay back in 2009. He went 34-14 in his first three seasons at the helm, including a run to the NFC Championship Game in the 2015 season.

Troops pull out from Syria 'not that quick'
The US President said: "We have defeated Isis in Syria, my only reason for being there during the Trump Presidency". Granting that request and withdrawing U.S. forces from Syria will likely depend in part on whether U.S.
