Cosmic radio blast result called into question within days | New Scientist
That was quick. Last week researchers reported they had traced a cosmic blast of radio waves back to its source
for the first time – but now another team of fast-acting astronomers has called the result into question.

These fast radio bursts (FRB) puzzle astronomers because their brevity makes them hard to trace to a source. On 25 February, a team lead by Evan Keane
at the Jodrell Bank Observatory in the UK published a paper in the journal Nature claiming they had finally found the source of one of these mysterious
signals. They did this by following up an observation of a fast radio burst (FRB) and seeing a galaxy with a radio “afterglow” in the same direction.
The discovery suggested that the blast was caused by two colliding neutron stars.
But now Peter Williams of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics and his colleagues say that conclusion is wrong. After reading the paper and
having doubts, they quickly got permission to use the Very Large Array radio telescope in Socorro, New Mexico, over the weekend to take another look at
the galaxy – and it is glowing again. This shouldn’t happen if the FRB was the result of a cosmic collision. “That’s just not consistent with the model
they lay out,” he says.
The galaxy probably contains what is known as an active galactic nucleus – a central region that glows brightly and variably in a number of wavelengths,
including radio. These are common and should be an obvious explanation to rule out. It is not clear why Keane’s team didn’t address this in their paper,
he says. “Frankly, I don’t know how the referees let this happen. The authors at least have to explain why their interpretation is more probable.”

These asteroids were removed from our NEO RIsk page last month -
they no longer have any chance of Earth impact.

The Multiple Identities of Omega Centauri | astrobites
The Milky Way, our lovely home galaxy, is not a lone rider in the Universe. Besides its many companions in the Local Group,
it is also surrounded by star clusters, which are clumps of stars smaller than galaxies. Star clusters can be distinguished
as open clusters and globular clusters. The former are often young and contain fewer than a few hundred members, while the
latter are usually old and composed by thousands of stars. It was believed that star clusters formed all their stars roughly
at the same time and from the same gas cloud. They would then be represented by a “single stellar population”, with a single
age and a single initial composition. However, as our observational techniques improved, it became clear that the story is
not so simple: many clusters turned out to show multiple stellar populations. Among those, the most prominent is the globular
cluster Omega Centauri.

Zajímavá reverze pozorování Keplera

A pair of astrophysicists have proposed a new strategy for searching for intelligent extraterrestrial life:
point our telescopes in the direction where, if life exists, it may have already found us.
“We’re mostly interested in the answer to the question: where in the sky are they?” said René Heller, an astrophysicist
at the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research in Göttingen, Germany, and the co-author of a paper detailing this
strategy published online Tuesday in Astrobiology.
