Parkes discovers more Fast Radio Bursts
by Simon Johnston (CASS)
Bhandari et al. (2017) report the discovery of four further Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs) using the 64-m Parkes telescope as part of the ongoing SUPERB survey for pulsars and transients. - FRB 160102 (bottom right panel) is now the record holder in terms of dispersion measure with a value of 2596 pc cm-3 which translates to a possible redshift of 2.1.
