We may be a step closer to understanding the mystery of fast radio bursts (FRBs), as astronomers have now detected the first such signal from within our own galaxy. The radio burst in this case was traced to a highly magnetic dead star called a magnetar, which could be key to unlocking the origin of these strange space signals.Continue ReadingCategory: Space, ScienceTags: Astronomy, Radio, Radio
New clues have been uncovered in the mystery of fast radio bursts (FRBs) from space. One of these strange signals has been repeating seemingly at random – but with years of observation, an international study has now found a pattern hidden in the noise, which could help reveal what causes them.Continue ReadingCategory: Space, ScienceTags: Fast Radio Bursts, Radio, Astronomy, University of Manches
New York fashion brand The Arrivals has created a puffer jacket with a Faraday pocket that blocks cellular and GPS signals on smartphones, to encourage wearers to switch off and "reconnect with the outdoors". Read more
Cancer cells often deploy specific "don't eat me" signals to hide from immune cells. A breakthrough new study from Stanford University has homed in on a previously undiscovered signaling protein that, if effectively inhibited, may lead to new treatments for breast, ovarian, and other difficult-to-treat cancers...

Strange signals known as fast radio bursts (FRBs) are one of the most intriguing mysteries of modern astronomy, so the more of them we can locate, the closer we get to figuring what causes them. Now we're a step closer to solving the riddle, as astronomers have managed to trace an FRB back to its home galaxy, many billions of light-years away... Continue Reading Astronomers close in on the
Fast radio bursts (FRBs) are one of the most puzzling mysteries of the space age. These one-off, millisecond-long signals pour in from all corners of the cosmos, and so far nobody's been able to figure out what causes them or where they're even coming from. Now, a team of astronomers has finally managed to trace one of the signals back to its home galaxy billions of light-years away, meani
Signal Snowboards notes the integral role that music plays in boarding, and has previously demonstrated its love for mixing the two in cardboard with a snowboard and a Stratocaster guitar fashioned from the packaging material. For its latest collaboration with Ernest Packaging Solutions, the company has made a working drum kit using cardboard...
