A research team led by the National Astronomical Observatories under the Chinese Academy of Sciences discovered 3 new FRBs with a high-dispersion measurement from the mass of data of China's Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical radio Telescope (FAST).
The discovery was published last week in The Astrophysical Journal Letters journal last week. The newly discovered FRBs, together with the first FRB captured by FAST in 2020, suggest there could be as many as 120,000 detectable FRBs arriving on Earth every day, according to the study. Based on the data from FAST, the scientists are expecting more discoveries while catching up with data processing.
