Researchers Probe Origin of Superpowerful Radio Blasts from Space (page 3)

Berkeley CA (SPX) Jan 11, 2018 Recent observations of a mysterious and distant object that emits intermittent bursts of radio waves so bright that they're visible across the universe provide new data about the source but fail to clear up the mystery of what causes them. The observations by the Breakthrough Listen team at UC Berkeley using the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope in West Virginia show that the fast radio
