  • Birthplace’ of a fast radio burst located for the first time

    An international team of astronomers, including Marta Burgay, Delphine Perrodin and Andrea Possenti from the Italian National Institute for Astrophysics (INAF), identified for the first time the place of origin of a Fast Radio Burst (FRB), enigmatic radio signals lasting just a few milliseconds, which appear without warning in the sky. The discovery was made thanks to observations done with optical telescopes and radio telescopes and allowed to confirm the current cosmological model describing the distribution of matter in the universe.
    It all starts on 18 April 2015, when the typical signal of a FRB is detected by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO)’s 64-metre Parkes Radio Telescope in Australia. “In a matter of hours, it has been issued an international alert and various telescopes around the world were involved in the search for the ‘result’ of that signal,” says Evan Keane, Project Scientist at the Square Kilometre Array Organisation, first author of the paper describing the discovery, published in the latest issue of the journal Nature.

    The INAF’s Sardinia Radio Telescope (SRT) was among them. “In April 2015, SRT was not in operation at 100 percent as it is today. Thanks to the great work of the INAF team for scientific validation of the radio telescope, SRT has, however, been able to attend promptly to the international campaign,” explains Marta Burgay. “The SRT observations, combined with those of other radio telescopes single disc, have ruled out that the FRB is associated with a repetitive cosmic phenomenon.”
