Cosmic Radio Waves Detected For The First Time From Space

Washington: For the first time, scientists have traced a powerful burst of cosmic radio waves inside our galaxy and also identified its source. The bursts lasted only a few milliseconds.

The bursts took place at a magnetar located 30,000 light-years away from Earth. Magnetar is a neutron star left over after a large star explodes.

It is reportedly the most luminous radio burst ever detected in our galaxy, according to an astrophysicist at McGill University in Montreal.
