Astronomers are on the hunt for the origin of the Furbies. No, not creepy little toy creatures, but fast radio bursts or FRBs (often pronounced “fur bees”). These FRBs are mysterious pulses of radio waves coming from space, and what exactly causes them has yet to be determined.
Science Mag
The Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), together with some 40 research institutions worldwide, released their latest discoveries on the brightest Gamma-Ray Burst (dubbed as GRB 221009A) ever detected by human.
For years, astronomers have been detecting incredibly powerful pulses from the cosmos, without a confirmed source. Recent advances in astronomy are getting us closer to the solution.

We have just published evidence in Nature Astronomy for what might be producing mysterious bursts of radio waves coming from distant galaxies, known as fast radio bursts or FRBs.

An international team of scientists found that there may be a correlation between the mysterious phenomena known as fast radio bursts (FRBs) and gravitational waves emanating from neutron star mergers.
Gravitational waves from the smashup came from the same part of sky at almost the same time
An unusual bright blast of light detected by multiple telescopes in December 2021 was the result of a rare cosmic explosion that created a wealth of heavy elements such as gold and platinum.

An international team of astrophysicists has reported the discovery of a unique cosmological gamma-ray burst (GRB) that defies current theories of how the violent cosmic explosions form. This exceptional burst has resulted in a new proposed model, or source, for certain types of gamma-ray bursts.
