October 11 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

Solving the Mystery of Fast Radio Bursts

In 2007, astronomers discovered a new mysterious cosmic phenomenon:  Fast Radio Bursts. These events consist of short, intense blasts of radio waves arriving from far outside our Milky Way galaxy.  Their origin is unknown, however Fast Radio Bursts appear ubiquitous in our Universe, with roughly 1000 arriving every day over the full sky.  Join Dr. Victoria Kaspi as she describes the Fast Radio Burst mystery and what is presently known about it, and talks about CHIME a revolutionary new radio telescope being built in Canada that will soon enable astronomers worldwide to make major progress in our understanding of the fast radio burst puzzle.
