Exploring bleeding edge experiments, oddities, new and bizarre dicoveries, and fact-checking conspiracy theories since 2008. No question is out of bounds and no topic is too strange for a deep dive.
A new simulation says that black holes are eating neutron stars and lighting up our telescopes with mysterious bursts of energy.
We might not know exactly what produces mysterious fast radio bursts, but we’re finally recording enough events to point the finger at potential culprits...
A new proposal posits that some of the fast radio bursts we've been routinely detecting may be coming from aliens, though not on purpose...
Fast radio bursts get even more mysterious with new detections and point to a new culprit: magnetically supercharged neutron stars.
While studying mysterious fast radio bursts, astronomers figured out why the universe weighs as much as it does and where that mass went.
No, fast radio bursts, or FRBs, aren't microwave noodles of impatient astronomers. They're a very real phenomenon the media just can't seem to get right.
The bizarre, extremely fast radio bursts astronomers have been detecting might be the result of doomed neutron stars...
