The signal — known as a fast radio burst — was found to repeat six times and appeared to originate from 1.5 billion lightyears away. FRBs are radio bursts that last a few milliseconds. They are often only discovered in data, which has made tracing their origin ... extremely challenging.”
The magazine notes that “in 2016 scientists discovered something that made FRBs even more perplexing — a signal that repeated.”
