Was it really a fast radio burst (FRB) that had been detected in early February? A follow-up study said no, but its origin is nonetheless surprising.
Space April 7, 2016
Astronomers have detected multi-flash fast radio bursts coming from the direction of the Auriga constellation for the past four years. The new discovery suggests that these brief flashes of radio waves in the sky could originate from cosmic sources that are capable of sending out bursts repeatedly.

Fast Radio Bursts are one of the least-witnessed events in astronomy. Now, they are seen repeating for the first time, ending one mystery while asking another.
Space March 2, 2016
For the first time ever, astronomers have measured the distance to a fast radio burst (FRB). How did this answer a pair of mysteries about the universe around us?

Astronomers studied fast radio bursts, or the mysterious pulses that likely hailed from a highly magnetized region of space and linked to a recent supernova. The blast was recorded by the Green Bank Telescope and gave insight into this phenomenon baffling scientists for nearly a decade.
Space December 3, 2015
For the first time, astronomers were able to observe a fast radio burst (FRB) as it happens, allowing them to rule out some theories of its sources.
