Chinese FAST telescope is the second largest telescope in the whole world. Its diameter is about 500 meters.

On Aug 30, FAST discovered a mysterious signal. It was coming from deep space. According to scientists, it was a Fast Radio Burst or FRB.

FRBs are powerful pulses of energy from distant parts of our cosmos. The first FRB was spotted in 2007 and scientists are detecting more of these radio bursts all the time.

But they still don’t know what these signals actually are and from where they originate. Some scientists believe these bursts are caused by some black holes or magnetars.

So we still don’t know from where the FRB detected by FAST came from. But what scientists can say is it was coming from a very high energy source located 3 billion light years away from us.

That’s it for this article.
