Violent origins imprinted in cosmic radio bursts

Gli astronomi hanno registrato misteriose emissioni di alta energia nella banda delle onde radio la cui luminosità e distanza puntano ad una origine cosmologica risalente all'epoca in cui l'Universo aveva una età di circa 6-7 miliardi di anni. The burst energetics indicate that they originate from an extreme astrophysical event involving relativistic objects such as…
