    Default Repeating FRB localized to distant dwarf galaxy



    This Washington Post article reports on the detection of a repeating fast radio burst (FRB). The data comes from the Arecibo Observatory. Astronomers were able to localize it optically to a dwarf galaxy 2.5 billion light years away. I wonder if it has a gamma-ray or X-ray component.

    I also searched for FRB posts to see if this had been reported already, but obviously not well enough! Thanks for consolidating these Bryan--your're on the ball!

    The same object is getting a lot of attention, rightly so.

    This might deserve another thread. This is a different take on a FRB detected in gamma rays.
