Discovery of a fast radio burst that pulses at regular intervals

A Canadian-led team of astronomers, including researchers from JIVE, has discovered that a repeating fast radio burst (FRB) originating from a nearby galaxy pulses at regular intervals. Researchers within the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME) Fast Radio Burst Collaboration used the CHIME telescope in British Columbia to show that the repeating radio source known as FRB 180916.J0158+65 - first discovered in 2018 by the same group - pulsates apparently every 16.35 days.

Corona virus and JIVE operations

Following the recommendations of the Dutch authorities, the ASTRON premises in Dwingeloo, which host JIVE, are closed until at least 20 May.

AstroFlash project to localise FRBs

The AstroFlash project will use the European VLBI Network to precisely localise the positions of Fast Radio Bursts.

The cosmic cow explained - radio signals point to an explosion and a newborn magnetar

Observations using 21 telescopes of the European VLBI Network (EVN) have revealed that a cosmic explosion, called AT2018cow most likely formed a neutron star with an extremely powerful magnetic field - known as a magnetar.

Celebrating milestones in space-borne high-resolution radio astronomy

The past decade has seen leaps forward in both the scientific and technical expertise needed to conduct high resolution radio astronomy observations from space. Future detailed studies of compact celestial radio sources, related technologies and recent breakthroughs in the field are highlighted in a special issue of Advances in Space Research, entitled “High Resolution Space-Bourne Radio Astronomy”.

Observing the most distant, yet powerful, engines of the Universe helps astronomers to understand its early formation

Radio astronomers have used a technique known as Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) to produce high resolution images of the most distant known blazar. The findings, reported in Nature Communications, cover the motion and emission of a jet originating from the heart of the blazar, to provide insights on how galaxies evolve.
