A repeating fast radio burst source localised to a nearby spiral galaxy
|Date||20 February 2020|
Precise localisation of fast radio bursts (FRBs) is crucial for understanding the population of FRBs and to explore the physical origin of the bursts. Before this work, there were only four localised FRBs, only one of which has been observed to repeat. I will discuss how we used very long baseline interferometry to localise a second repeating FRB to ~milliarcsecond precision and present what we found at the FRB location.
