No this is not from your radio but an example of form of energy hold a fast radio boast that merges far away from planeta now for the first time an australian led team of researchers has determined the location of one of these signals transformed into audio for the human ear that has come from the galaxy three point six billion light years away it comes two years after researchers pinpointed a similar birth but this one is set to be different so what does this all mean and of course what exactly is a fast radio best i asked keith bannister the lead author of the study and astronomer at the commonwealth stein to fake and research organization it's a radio waves it's like what it says on the tin it happens very quickly in the blink of an eye so you can imagine it lost for about a thousand of a second and they're extremely bright so in that thousand of a second they shine full we can see them from about halfway across the universe But this is the first time that this has happened, right? i discovered in two thousand and seven and since then we've discovered about eighty only one of them which is one we call a repeat i which repeats has been really localized to galaxy we in that case we know it's home it's home galaxy but we've done this time is we've localized once i saw a burst that only happens once we've never seen it before or since and from that little shining did for that thousands of a second we were able to work out its name address and phone number it's a dress on the sky this is very exciting what do you think caused it well that's the that's the million dollar question for the and the other one that's been detected or localized to galaxy we have this model magneto model the magnetized is a type of star it's a type of neutron star to make magnetized usually neat need young stars magnetized loss very long you know they either die spectacularly oh you know become old and boring rockstars but foul and we actually found albus came from a much older and much bowl massive logic alexey than what we found in that first case so where does your research next very excited about this research there's two things that are really exciting is as i said working out exactly what they are where they come from and they come from a huge range of environments the second thing that's really exciting is that when we find foster radio vist we actually get straightaway how much guests on through and that's exciting because the guests between galaxies is where we think there's a whole bunch of meta hiding that we've never seen before so strong as an mkx terrible accountants right so we've lost half the matter in the universe so about four percent of
