    New Canadian Radio Telescope is Detecting Fast Radio Bursts

    The Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME), a revolutionary new radio telescope, recently made its first-ever detection of a possible Fast Radio Burst (FRB)

    Fast radio bursts are an intriguing problem for science. Perhaps their distribution in space could tell us something about their nature. I noticed that about one third on the 36 FRBs currently known are all confined within an area of just under 2 percent of the sky ( Right Ascension 16 through 0 hours, Declination 0 through -20 degrees). If FRBs are a very distant, astrophysical phenomenon, it seems that they should be distributed at random across the skies.
