China’s gigantic telescope detects new fast radio burst from space

Chinese scientists using the world’s largest radio telescope, the Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Radio Telescope (FAST), have detected a new fast radio burst (FRB) from space. FRBs are brief, mysterious radio signals from the cosmos, and their origins remain unexplained. The discovery, known as FRB 20200317A, was made by a local research team and reported in September. FAST, located in China’s Guizhou Province, is the largest single-dish radio telescope globally and has been operational since January 2020. This discovery adds to the understanding of FRBs and could provide insights into various astrophysical questions.
