Episode 16 --- Deciphering Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs), arguably the most bizarre radio emissions ever detected.
Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs) have hogged the headlines for the last decade or so; prompting many news organizations to question whether they are produced by far-flung alien civilizations in the midst of some sort of bizarre intergalactic transport mechanism. The truth however is likely much more mundane; they could be flashes from Hawking’s storied evaporating black holes or colliding neutron stars or something we have simply failed to imagine. But in this podcast episode, Duncan Lorimer, their co-discoverer, at West Virginia University (WVU) in Morgantown, gives us the straight scoop on what they most likely are and aren’t. Great episode!
