Eight New Repeating Fast Radio Bursts

Recommended Posts

Eight new repeating Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs) have been discovered. It was once thought that FRBs were caused by catastrophic astrophysical events, which would definitely make them one-shot affairs.  That is now plainly not the case. It can't even be said that FRBs occur under consistent conditions. Some give signs of coming from an intense magnetic environment, other do not. Given the variable rates at which the new FRB repeated, it's now being speculated that all FRBs may repeat over some period of time. Some apparent non-repeaters could simply be less frequently active than current repeating FRBs.
