The earliest known fast radio burst (FRB), which dates back eight billion years, has been observed by astronomers.

Since their discovery in 2007, hundreds of these unusual space radio waves have been detected on Earth

According to Australian researcher Ryan Shannon "the burst has the energy that the sun produces in 30 years."

Using the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder radio telescope.

Mr. Shannon claims to have discovered FRB 20220610A, which was 1.5 times more energetic than other FRBs that had been discovered.

FRBs are believed to originate from strongly magnetized neutron stars located in faraway galaxies.

The source of the explosion is believed to be contained in a cluster of galaxies that the researchers discovered.

According to the most recent discovery, FRBs have been occurring for at least half of the universe's history, or 13.7 billion years.

massive black hole, a river of dark matter, a planet made of diamonds, ancient stars, and a cosmic hall of mirrors

FRBs are studied by astronomers in an effort to improve our understanding of the early cosmos. 

Certain waves from these explosions arrive on Earth with slightly longer wavelengths than others.

The FRB interacts with matter on route from the source galaxy to us.
