What are the origin(s) of fast radio bursts?
by Mannings et al.
The origin(s) of fast radio bursts remains a mystery. Two classes of FRBs are known -- sources which repeat, and sources which appear to be a one-off event. ASKAP has successfully localised a number of one-off FRBs, and other telescopes have pinpointed the location of repeating FRBs. Yesterday's ADAP described the work of Mannings et al. based on Hubble Space Telescope observations of FRB host galaxies. This work was described in this NASA press release with the image above being a still from a video included in the release. (Credits: NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center)
