Fast radio bursts (Fast Radio Bursts — FRB) are isolated radio pulses with a duration of only a few milliseconds. There is still no unified theory of the origin of these radio signals, due to the fact that the number of registered cases at the moment is extremely small. For the first time, a quick burst was discovered by a group led by Professor Duncan Lorimer in February 2007, and since then, the number of reported bursts does not exceed a couple of dozen times. And recently, a team of astronomers have proposed to use to record these mysterious signals smartphones.
Scientists at the moment, the source of all was the fast radio bursts are distant galaxies, but there is the assumption that the source can be our own milky Way galaxy. In this case, the momentum should be enough «noisy» in order to be able to hear the receivers of the cellular networks. In favor of this theory says the fact that range some was at the moment, the fast radio bursts is in the range used by such cellular standards, like LTE, 3G, and also wireless technology Wi-Fi. In this case, the use of the most ordinary smartphones as detectors can give a great result. And to take efforts to explore the mysteries of the cosmos will every be able, just by downloading a special app to your device. It will be in the background to scan for available radio frequency and to send the received information to scientists for data analysis. According to one of the authors of the research, astrophysicist AVI Loeb of the Center for astrophysics of Harvard-Smithson
«Search for fast radio bursts from sources that are close to us, can be carried out with the help of citizens enthusiasts. The collected data can be much richer than data received by using telescopes. And it can help scientists to study one of the most mysterious to date, phenomena of our Universe».
However, not all is so rosy: to register this rare phenomenon will require patience. The fact that such bursts occur once in a 30-1500 years. But there is good news: it was observed that some of them can be repeated many times over quite short periods of time, so maybe we won't have to wait until 3500 years to unravel the mystery of the fast radio bursts.
