This phenomenon is described as extremely short, sharp pulses of radio waves coming from an unknown source in space. The results were published in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

Such bursts of radio waves, lasting only a few milliseconds, the researchers observed in recent years. For the first time such a phenomenon has been observed by chance in 2007, when astronomers searched archival data Parkes Radio Telescope in eastern Australia. Since then, the Parkes Radio Telescope recorded six such bursts, and data on the seventh scientists are obliged to Arecibo telescope in Puerto Rico. Almost all of these bursts were discovered long after their occurrence. In order to find out the source scientist was important to observe the burst in real time.



A team of astronomers from Australia, has developed a method of finding a "quick radio bursts," and it really works. A team of astronomers from Swinburne University of Technology, led by Emily Petroff, succeeded in detecting the first "live" flash. Scientists have observed it all in the same telescope Parkes Radio. It is reported that the source of radio waves is located about 5.5 billion light years from Earth.

Immediately thereafter, utilizing telescopes worldwide, not only the ground, but also the space, researchers began studying the phenomenon a different wavelength range from infrared to visible, ultraviolet and X-ray.

And what do they see? It'S Nothing! On the other wavelengths of radiation is not visible.

The source of such radio bursts, scientists have not yet discovered, but determined that it can not serve them. This made it possible to narrow the search.

"The observations data allow to exclude a number of phenomena, such as gamma-ray bursts from exploding stars and supernovae," - explains Daniel Malizani, an astrophysicist at the University of Copenhagen. "The source of the radio bursts can serve as objects of small type, such as neutron stars or black holes. These spikes can be caused by shaking the crust of a neutron star. Now we know much more about what is necessary to search.
