Since 2007, astronomers have detected curious bright blasts of radio waves from the cosmos, each lasting no more than a few milliseconds. Now scientists have been able to pinpoint the source of one of these pulses: a galaxy 1.9 billion parsecs (6 billion light years) away. It probably came from two colliding neutron stars, says astronomer Evan Keane of the Jodrell Bank Observatory outside Manchester, UK, who led the team that reports the detection in Nature.

The discovery is the “measurement the field has been waiting for”, says astronomer Kiyoshi Masui of the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. By finding more such fast radio bursts (FRBs) and measuring the distance to their source, astronomers hope to use the signals as beacons to shed light on the evolution of the Universe.

6 BILLION light years! 2 colliding neutron stars! Sweeeeet!

astonishment. “I never heard of such a thing!”

For me, it is absolutely FASCINATING how much distance there really is "out there."

I LOVE producing and writing some of the shows I have worked on, simply because I get to dive in and talk to some of the coolest and most amazing minds in the world that research this stuff.

It really is mind blowing.

Yep I agree! 😉 hehe

Do you have a list somewhere on the vault of the shows you have written / produced / been featured in ? I have seen a couple of the shows!

Here are some of the shows I've produced/written/directed etc. Not 100%, but a start: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm182.....fn_al_nm_1

On camera? No list... 🙂

Why isn't this on the blackvault somewhere? 

You should also make a list for on camera. Laugh
