“Unlocking the Secret of FRB’s” –Pulsar Orbiting Milky Way’s Black Hole

Supermassive Black Hole


New research provides clues that magnetars, lying in close proximity to a black hole, could perhaps be linked to the source of “fast radio bursts,” or FRBs. FRBs are high-energy blasts that originate beyond our galaxy but whose exact nature is unknown. They appear to come from extreme high-energy objects, but because they last just a few milliseconds, their origin remains a profound mystery.

“Fast radio bursts are exceedingly bright given their short duration and origin at great distances, and we haven’t identified a possible natural source with any confidence,” said theorist Avi Loeb¬†at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. “An artificial origin is worth contemplating and checking.”
