The constant state of research in the field of space has made it possible for the scientists for the CSIRO’s Australian SKA Pathfinder (ASKAP) radio telescope to detect some extremely powerful signals being bombarded from the deep space. There has been a dramatic and mysterious let out of radio waves from the space that has never ever been seen so closer or brighter. The current phenomenon is not a new story for the Australian researchers as it has been puzzling the researchers for more than a decade now. It has been named the “fast radio bursts” as the number of bursts that have taken place has nearly doubled than the signals obtained before.
According to the lead researcher Dr. Ryan Shannon, after the discovery in 2007, the bursting of the waves has taken place 20 times faster within a year. The ASKAP has been able to confirm that the fast radio bursts are coming from the other region of the Universe other than our galactic neighborhood. The mystifying blasts consist the power of around 500 Million suns even though they may last for only a millisecond; thus making it impossible to be traced. The recent burst has been ranked as the most powerful and brightest than the previously recorded ones. Though the waves have to pass through clouds of different gases or may even take billions of years to reach the Earth it just loses some of its wavelength power. The most exciting part is that the different arrival timings of the wavelengths help detect the presence of different matter during the space journey.
The researchers haven’t been able to come to a conclusion for the base of its arrival. However, powerful events are being held responsible for this phenomenon. The cataclysmic episodes akin to neutron stars or colliding black holes are being proved to cause the bursts. The explanations for such an occurrence have been outlandish to date. At last, even after the death of Stephen Hawkings, his concept regarding the black hole information paradox has been published. The paradox proves that the black hole that leaves behind a vacuum tends to have soft hairs that consist of photons or electrons that can help recover the information lost as no information can be lost and if lost it can be recovered according to the law of physics. Thus, “Hawking radiation” is surely going to help the upcoming scientists.
