A repeating Fast Radio Burst from a spiral galaxy
Telescopes in the European VLBI Network (EVN), including Jodrell Bank’s Mark II Telescope, have observed a repeating Fast Radio Burst (FRB) in a spiral galaxy similar to our own.

The discovery, once again, changes researchers’ assumptions on the origins of these mysterious extragalactic events.
