ASKAP offers new insight into cosmic mystery

ASKAP researchers using have detected fast radio burst in a nearby galaxy that questions what we know about how the phenomena form.

New results published today in The Astrophysical Journal indicate the source of the interstellar blast is in a much calmer galactic environment than other known events.

Marcin Glowacki from the Curtin University node of the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) led the latest research using our ASKAP radio telescope on Wajarri Yamaji Country in Western Australia.

Dr Glowacki said while previous studies suggest colliding galaxies could create massive stars that may eventually cause fast radio bursts, this paper's findings challenge that idea.
