In the Observatory, Canada could catch an unusual signal from space

Thanks to the revolutionary technology, specialists from Canada managed to create a new type of telescope — Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (Chime). The experiment on mapping hydrogen intensity became the basis for the possibility of fixing a new type of signal from space.

Scientists investigated space in British Columbia, where on July 25, the FRB signal was recorded at a frequency below 700 MHz. He was assigned the name FRB 180725A. According to scientists, FRB is millisecond bursts of radio emission, which occur from an unknown source in the universe. They are one of the new space secrets. Possible explanations include bursts with magnetarov, bangs of black holes, and, of course, enthusiasts could not pass by the theme of highly developed alien civilizations.

The main purpose of the chime station is to collect data on FRB and monitoring other space phenomena, the answers to which are not able to give any of the Earth sciences. After receiving the FRB 180725A signal, scientists called on all astronomers and stakeholders to start learning frequencies in order to gain confirmation of the signal.

Now the telescope is located in the Dominion Radio Saturessic Observatory (DRAO). Drao provides a scientific and technical infrastructure that includes equipped laboratories, manufacturing workshops, computer networks, Internet access, office space and electricity. Drao building is protected from anthropogenic radio frequency phenomena.
