Mysterious signals from a far distance in the universe. FRBs.

Fast radio bursts are bright and broadband taking a large range of frequencies. They usually take no more than a few milliseconds. The signals are enough strong to stand out between white noises the burst is like a spike which appears for a few milliseconds. The source of these bursts varies, and they come from all over the milky way.
