Fast radio bursts (FRBs) are one of the most powerful and mysterious astronomical phenomena of our time. These fast-moving events consist of explosions that release more energy in one fraction of a second than our sun does in three full days, according to reports.

“No matter how appealing the suspicion of an alien life form may be behind this phenomenon, it has happened several times in the history of astronomy that when we hypothesized an extraterrestrial civilization to explain a newly discovered problem or phenomenon, it was proven that this was not the case,” he said in the Utopia broadcast. Robert Szabo astronomer. According to the director of the Miklós Konkoly-Thege Astronomical Institute of the Astronomy and Earth Sciences Research Center, fast radio bursts are a phenomenon that is detected in the radio band, which is probably a very compact, very dense neutron star with enormous magnetic force, with a physical composition that does not necessarily exist in our environment. cosmic. “They practically behave like nuclear cores that have grown to enormous size,” said Szabo, adding that these are the remnants of very large stars that rotate very quickly on their axis and emit radio signals like a beacon.

What is the chance of forming a system similar to our solar system?

For the first time, clumps of material have been discovered around a young star that form the basis of giant planets; Hungarian scientist Agnes Kopal, Scientific Adviser to the Konkoli Teg Miklos Institute of Astronomy of the Research Center for Astronomy and Earth Sciences (CSFK CSI) participated in the International Astronomical Collaboration – also wrote Eötvös Loránd Research Network (ELKH).

Although the rate of birth of star systems has slowed since the Big Bang, the processes can still be observed to this day.

The eternal question: What is a black hole?

The secret of black holes is that they have almost unimaginable properties, in the world in which they are The quantum world and gravity meet. And according to Sabo, this is the root of the problem. A theory of atomic and electromagnetic phenomena has already been created. “Gravity is always somehow excluded from that equation, and Einstein even attempted to create a quantum theory of gravity.”

“This is why we cannot describe what could be inside a black hole and what state it might be in,” he summed up the problem.
