A repeating fast radio burst from an extragalactic source detected 11.1.2018 General News

The unprecedentedly potent magnetic field in the source's environment could be the reason, researchers speculate.Researchers Victoria Kaspi and Shriharsh Tendulkar carried out the study for a year. They named the fast radio burst as FRB 121102 and pinpointed the location of this enigmatic source of such power field.They reported that it is located in a dwarf galaxy in its star-forming region, more than 3 billion light-years away from Earth.
