New method for calculating cosmic distances, based on the use of the mysterious energy bursts - VIDEO PDF Print E-mail

Researchers from the University of British Columbia (University of British Columbia, UBC), Canada, offers a new way of calculating cosmic distances, based on the use of the mysterious energy bursts. In the new study, researchers from UBC offer a new method for determining cosmic distances using flashes of energy, known as the fastest radio bursts. The method allows researchers to determine the position of distant galaxies in three dimensions and create a three-dimensional map space. These short bursts of radio frequency energy caused by unknown astrophysical phenomena. Although to date there were a total of only 10 fast radio bursts, but scientists believe that the incidence of these events in the Universe can reach several thoUSAnd bursts per day. As these fast radio bursts are moving toward the Earth, they diverge and come to the observer at different times, depending on the wavelength of a particular radio burst. Researchers have suggested the use of the delay between the time of arrival of the radio waves of different frequencies for mapping the cosmos. The value difference signal coming to Earth, giving scientists an idea of ​​how many electrons, and in a broader sense - of matter, including stars, gas and dark matter - is between the Earth and the source of the radio burst. Radio telescope CHIME (Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment) may give scientists the first regular measurements fast radio bursts. This technique may be an effective way to build a three-dimensional image space. This scientific tool can also be used to map the distribution of matter in the Universe and study the history of its evolution.
