Thanks to revolutionary technologies, experts from Canada have managed to create a new type of telescope — Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME). An experiment on mapping the chemical compound of hydrogen became for the possibility of fixing a new type of signal from space.
Scientists have explored space in British Columbia, where FRB was detected below 700 MHz on 25 July. It was named FRB 180725A. According to scientists, FRB — these are millisecond bursts of radio emission that originate from an unknown source in the universe. They — one of the new cosmic secrets. Possible explanations include bursts from magnetars, explosions of black holes, and, of course, enthusiasts could not ignore the topic of highly advanced alien civilizations..
The main purpose of the CHIME station — collection of data on FRB and observation of other space phenomena, the answers to which are not able to give any of the earth sciences. After receiving the FRB 180725A signal, scientists urged all astronomers and individuals to start studying frequencies in order to obtain confirmation of the signal..
The telescope is now located at the Dominion Radioastrophysical Observatory (DRAO). DRAO provides a scientific and technical infrastructure that includes equipped laboratories, production halls, computer networks, Internet access, office space and electricity.. The DRAO building is protected from anthropogenic radio frequency phenomena.
