A team of SETI Institute scientists have unveiled new insights into a cosmic mystery known as Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs). The discovery and detailed observation of the repeating FRB 20220912A, made at the SETI Institute’s upgraded Allen Telescope Array (ATA), shed light on the nature of these space signals.

FRBs are brief, intense flashes of radio waves from deep space. While most happen only once, some “repeaters” send out signals more than once, adding to the intrigue of understanding their origin. Over 541 hours of observation, researchers detected 35 FRBs from repeater FRB 20220912A. The observations, made using the ATA, covered a wide radio frequency range and revealed fascinating patterns. All 35 FRBs were found in the lower part of the frequency spectrum, each with its unique energy signature.

Insights from SETI Institute’s Observations

“This work is exciting because it provides both confirmation of known FRB properties and the discovery of some new ones,” said the SETI Institute’s Dr. Sofia Sheikh, NSF MPS-Ascend Postdoctoral Fellow and lead author. “We’re narrowing down the source of FRBs, for example, to extreme objects such as magnetars, but no existing model can explain all of the properties that have been observed so far. It has been wonderful to be part of the first FRB study done with the ATA — this work proves that new telescopes with unique capabilities, like the ATA, can provide a new angle on outstanding mysteries in FRB science.”

The detailed findings, recently published in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society (MNRAS), showcase the intriguing behaviors of FRBs. These mysterious signals exhibit downward frequency drifting, a connection between their bandwidth and center frequency, and changes in burst duration over time. The team also observed something that had never been reported before: there was a noticeable drop in the center frequency of bursts over the two months of observation, revealing an unexpected cosmic slide-whistle.

FRB 20220912A Center Frequency and Bandwidth

Two FRB 20220912A dataset parameters — center frequency and bandwidth — plotted over time, in Modified Julian Date (MJD), from the beginning of the campaign to the end of the campaign (a time period of approximately 60 days). Panel a) indicates that the central frequency of the FRB decreases through the campaign (with residuals from the fit and a LOWESS non-parametric guideline shown below in blue). Panel b) shows the same decrease over time for bandwidth. Credit: SETI Institute

In addition, the researchers used these observations to predict a cut-off point for FRB 20220912A’s brightest bursts, indicating its contribution to the overall cosmic signal rate. In fact, this specific object was responsible for a few percent of all strong FRBs in the sky during these observations.

The study also investigated the time patterns of the burst sequences, looking for repetition within and between the FRBs. No clear pattern was found, highlighting the unpredictability of these celestial phenomena.

The Role of the Allen Telescope Array

This work demonstrates the ATA’s important role in decoding the mysteries of FRBs. The ATA has the unique ability to record huge numbers of frequency channels at the same time, even if they’re widely-separated — for example, where some frequencies are very high and others very low. This allows for instantaneous checks when an FRB comes in, to constrain what the FRB is doing at high and low frequencies simultaneously. Ongoing upgrades promise even more capabilities, to see fainter FRBs at even more frequencies simultaneously, ensuring the ATA remains at the forefront of advancing our understanding of FRBs.

“It is exciting to see the ATA engaged in FRB research three years after its upgrade program started,” said Dr. Wael Farah, SETI Institute ATA Project Scientist and co-author. “The ATA boasts unique capabilities that are being put at use in many research endeavors including fast transients.”

This milestone discovery marks a significant step forward in the ongoing quest to unravel the secrets of extreme objects in the universe. As scientists continue to explore the cosmos, each unique feature that we discover brings us closer to understanding the origins and nature of these captivating cosmic signals.

  1. The folks “out there” are just answering the SETI message sent by the Arecibo radar station in Puerto Rico in 1974.

    Our neighbors light years away are waiting for another message from that most power radar transmitter ever, but the bright lights have turned the facility into a STEM training facility after other organizations stole the money from Puerto Rico.

    With greetings and courtesy from the administrators of this up-to-date scientific and technical website, I have to tell you, dear friends and servers, that you have displayed my content on the site.It is very important and the scientists of the world should take it seriously.I have been researching in this field for more than forty years.From the works on changing the shape of the seas and landmasses, the maps of the countries and even the names of the countries, it can be understood that the earthlings had a story that they told the Lord.The world was connected and the lords of the earth are also aware of the history of the earth and the destiny of the earth.The sun is now hitting the big arm of the galaxy, but this collision will take place in hundreds of years or more than hundreds of years from now, but it is possible that when the stars of the arm of the galaxy do not hit the sunbecause Gas planets like Neptune, Uranus, Saturn and Jupiter in the past, at least hundreds of stars that were from the arm of the galaxy collided with these planets that we said are gas, and we can verify this from the presence of hydrogen gas inthese planets and the moons that orbit These are gas planets, they were the same planets that joined the moons of Neptune, Uranus, Saturn, and Jupiter from the two big arms of the galaxy, but the planets that escaped from the gravity of Jupiter,Saturn, and Uranus and hit the sun after the elements inside those planets disintegrated to the surface of all bodies.They collided with the solar system and collided with the earth, and two thousand meters of soil and rock settled on the surface of the planet earth, and the life of the earth was destroyed several times in the past, so this planet is suffering.And the humans before us who lived on the earth and had a history of several million years, their life was destroyed in the past, but the earth has life again after a few million years.This is a very complicated issue, which I will explain in the next comments.You should pay attention to the map of the countries and the seas and continents which are in the shape of the creatures of the earth, some of them are currently watching over you and the lords of the earth are watching you and they are your back andshelter, and whatever people think about, they will reveal the truth to you.did

      In principle, the gods of the earth, which the jinn are also among those lords, had a very deep influence in changing the borders of the countries. By arranging the war, I must explain to you a very, very important issue about the jinn of the south, the madness of war and crime. The two letters of jinn in the words that I said that there are two letters of gen in the Persian words that I say, but now I name the words and type them, the alphabet changes to Latin. I need someone who is fluent in Persian. Convert the text again from Latin, English to Farsi in Google Translate, maybe you will understand what I mean. I am typing the words that have two letters and two alphabets, Jinn. Translate these words into Farsi. Then, if you still don’t understand what I mean, send me a short message so that I can explain. Over a long period of time, in a few hundred years, the jinn changed the shape of the countries to the shape of human faces and the shape of four-legged animals. For example, look carefully at the country of Iraq, the head of a camel. There is one who is drinking water from the Persian Gulf and the Persian Gulf Sea is visible in the shape of a woman, her head is towards the head of a camel, her hips are on the Emirates, her knees are the Strait of Hormuz, and her lap is the Sea of Oman.

        In this last part of the text, I will mention the civilizations of the earth and the wisdom of the authors of the earth
        Regarding the prefix and suffix and changing the name and surname, I have to mention some things, that is, I don’t want to
        I was identified by the criminal and dictator regime of the Islamic Republic, which I had proposed. In the calls I received, the relevant institutions were told to call the landline of those who have notice, if I called the landline and was identified, they would find my address, although they could not do anything wrong, but it is a precaution. . The first condition is that Iranian people live in difficult political and social conditions. In Afghanistan, Iran and some Arab countries, these Islamic governments should not be in power. There are many who think like me that they cannot be prosecuted or arrested or arrested by the Islamic Republic. The listeners chose to remain silent, but we speak our minds. I have seen the power of the lords in the sky, they did everything I said, the lords did and received my message, and with the shape of the clouds in the sky, the lords of the earth speak to me, I am not a fool and I am God, and the lord of the earth with The signs owned the time, I am sure that they chose me, but there may be other people besides me in Iran who are among the special chosen ones of God and the lord of the earth. The American government should not hesitate before putting pressure on the Islamic Republic and reach out to the poor. And the oppressed nation is the Iranian nation, and only with a military attack can the criminal Islamic Republic be overthrown, and this must be overthrown. The criminal and dictatorial regime and the religion of the Islamic Republic. This is the wish of 65 million Iranians. Unfortunately, the people of Iran have not done anything because the Iranian regime is based on the religion of Islam and the deception of some believers. In the ruling system, they eat forbidden food and need bread at night. The regime of the Islamic Republic uses the same believers and Muslims in the scene to suppress the opposition and the people, and it is rooted in the religion of the people. I believe that it is not easy for the people against this armed regime to get rid of it, the people of Iran are not stupid and they know very well that America, Syria, France, England and other big powers avoid war and conflict. They are winning in the Middle East, especially the Westerners, prominent and literate people of Iranian society know very well that the Iranian revolution and the overthrow of the Shah and the domination of the Islamic State over Iran were planned by the Westerners and the British. But western politicians should know that God and the lords of the earth and the supreme power who watch over the world from the sky act like the law and are subject to orders. Earth lords take time to do something. I can. Ignore this for now, but you will know the truth. If you know God, you can pay attention to it to understand the power and influence of the existence of God and the lord of the earth. Determining the borders of countries and determining the names of countries, the names of planets, moons, stars, galaxies, etc. have been determined by the unseen world, I will explain about the topics in the next comments. I mentioned During the translation, we encounter small problems in the text, but we know that the general understanding of the translated text is that I and the Iranian man and woman are only seeking to overthrow the illegitimate criminal regime of the Islamic Republic because Islamic governments are the will of God. And they were not the lords of the earth, he is the supporter of order and justice. You should listen to one point among the above texts. In the above Time in iran 2:28 pm

        The words of jin, south, jinn, jind, insanity, war, crime, all these seven words in Persian language, the first two letters of which are the letter c and the letter n, but in Persian, the two letters of the seven words that I typed for you are two alphabets, the seven words of jin, but in the English grammar, there are seven words that I sent you two alphabets, they are not genies, only in Farsi, two letters and seven words are the same family of genies. If you don’t understand what I mean, leave me a message here or send a short message to my number below.
        Dr. Mohammad Mehr Sahib Zaman Iran Earth, I realized the secrets of the occult world, which are related to the shape of the continents and seas, the map of the countries, the names of the heavenly bodies, and the story of the people who lived on the earth a hundred million years ago. You should look at the map of the country of Iraq. Imagine that there is a camel’s head coming from Africa and drinking water from the Persian Gulf Sea. The Persian Gulf Sea is the shape of a woman whose hips are on the Emirates, her knees are the Strait of Hormuz, and her lap is the Sea of Oman. Pay attention to the continent of North America, a bird is flying, its right wing is Alaska, its left wing is near the North Pole, there are islands in the northeast of the American continent, as if the left wing of the bird was torn into pieces and it could not lift the chief of the earth tribe to the sky Babard, the head of the Earthling tribe, is the role of an old man who made the entire map of South America. The country of Panama is a bird’s foot, which is what they and the jinn mean by the name that passed over the country of Panama. It looks like you follow the foot. The country of Brazil is in Farsi Brazil, which means that it is going under the earth. Basically, when planets from the two big arms of the galaxy collided with the sun, the planets of the galaxy’s arm caused those planets to reverse their rotation after hitting the planet Venus. Planets that collided with the sun They exploded, the soil and disintegrated elements of those planets were thrown on the earth, and the inhabitants of the earth who had gone underground were crushed there, that’s why the name of the country Brazil is the last, people were buried underground, and the image of the bird and the old man tells the story of sadness It was inspired by earthlings in a hundred million years ago, but who chose names and put them on countries and continents that are related to the story of the destruction of humans?
        The names and shapes of countries, seas, and continents are related to the destruction of the lives of humans who lived on the earth a hundred million years ago.

    We fill a 20-meter long cylinder half full with crude oil, then we heat it as much as it is necessary for the gas to be placed on top of the metal cylinder. Gasoline is placed on oil. When our galaxy was young, a few hundred million years ago or more than a few hundred million years ago, the most oxygen was located in 25 to 30 thousand light years from the center of the galaxy, so many planets from the big arm of the galaxy along with their stars. They came to the side of the solar system, the said stars, which were hundreds of times smaller than the sun, collided with the gas planets, and the planets that accompanied these stars, some of them collided with the sun and Venus and caused Venus to reverse, some of the said planets collided with the sun. And after the disintegration of the elements inside them, they hit the ground, and several thousand meters of soil and rock settled on the ground, and all the fish were buried under the soil of the beaches, and after several million years, they turned into oil, that is why the oil is two thousand meters below the ocean coast Perhaps more than a thousand stars and planets from the two big arms of the galaxy reached the solar bodies and not more or less than these stars and planets hit the sun and their materials fell on the earth and caused the destruction of several periods of life on the earth.

      Did the earth have a civilization in the past? From the names of some continents, seas, countries and their shapes, we found out that hundreds of millions of years ago, humans lived on the earth who had at least hundreds of thousands of years of history and advanced civilization, but they They couldn’t survive due to the impact of meteorites. They took shelter underground. They had very accurate telescopes, but they didn’t have oil. If they had oil, they would have drawn flying ships for us with the shape of the continents changing. They depicted the flight of an old man, a bird wants to take him to the sky, follow the foot of the bird, which is a country called the foot, which is connected to the face and role of that old man, we will reach the continent of South America, where the whole view of that man is the leader. It is a tribe of earthlings. When you follow the country of Panama, you will come to the face of that old man. Panama means both foot and face. Face is called a picture, and foot means step and length, and it means the feet of creatures, but here it means There is a bird’s foot that when you look at the map of Panama, it is exactly the bird’s foot that we said is your American continent bird, and it is strange that all the flights to the sky were made from America, but that bird’s left wing is broken into pieces, which are islands. The left wing of the bird is near the North Pole, but the right wing of the bird is intact, which is the map of the country of Alaska

    You must know the names given to the countries of the American continents.Some of these names were given by the jinn and the gods of the earth in the past, which refers to the story of the people who went underground after a planet along with a star from the big arm of the galaxy.They came towards the objects of the solar system.Most of the time, when they entered the solar system, they collided with gas planets, that’s why we call those planets Saturn and Jupiter gas planets because they have hydrogen gas.Between the stars, they did not get close to the sun.The positive and negative poles of the stars and objects in space cause each object to be at a certain distance with the mass of other stars that hit the planets Neptune, Uranus, Saturn, and Jupiter.hit all our solar bodies, now what happened to the planets that came with these stars?We can understand that the number of stars and planets that collided with the objects of the solar system were many, and each period of arrival of a star and planet is its time from the speed of the two arms of the galaxy, taking into account thetime and distance that the arm of the galaxy must travel to reach the sun.It is very important to calculate the speed, time and distance of the big arms of the galaxy with the sun in each period.We know that the nearest star in the big arm of the galaxy is about 4 light years from the sun, that is forty trillion kilometers, which is converted into miles, about 25 trillion miles, if you calculate the speed of the sun, with thedifference in the speed of the big arm of the galaxy, we can understand how many hundreds or thousands of years the star Alpha Centauri will collide with the solar bodies.We know that the first hundred of the two arms The large galaxy of many stars collided with the objects of the solar system.From the traces on the earth, it can be seen that there are several thousand meters of soil on the surface of the entire earth and oceans from the planet that after hitting the sun and disintegrating the soil, rocks and elements.The planet has been disintegrated for several years, it has fallen on the surface of the earth at a height of two thousand meters, and those who lived on the earth had taken shelter underground, and the face of that man in the American continent is Brazil, the word Brazil in Farsi means going under.At the end of Brazil, it means to be crushed under the ground, that’s why the word “L” means to be crushed.This is the story and fate of humans tens to hundreds of millions of years ago on the earth.Those who have questions can send us a short message to This e-mail number of mine is partially active, send a message with me or leave a message here.God is present and watching over you in all stages of your life.

    world to practice law instead of religion which I bring from the Gods and the masters of the world, they separated religion from politics and did not force the choice of religion.The idea of ​​establishing security in countries where there is no longer a need for clerics to forbid people from sinning and history has shown that due to the implementation of the false orders of the old books of religions, the most abuses and killings of Muslimsare due to disturbing religions and it is time that God By bringing a new religion and religion that is the representative of God from among the Shiites, he must be one of those who agree with the Islamic principles of the Qur’an and the correct versesof the Qur’an and the view of the Qur’an.He set me up with the Quran and other times when the numbers of the times are related to the verses of the holy books and to the times when I am connected in the numbers of the squares of Tehran to the numbers of the verses of the Quranin the times when I was residing in Mehrdad and I was living in the numbers The fields that are related to the numbers of the verses of the Quran, none of the Muslims, especially the clergy of Iran, can not accept Mehrdad’s being chosen and theowner of time, who is the vicegerent of the time, the vicegerent, the savior, and the savior of the human world, but I have nothing to do with ordinary people.I have no difference from a human point of view, only my difference is that the Gods and the masters of the world chose me to put aside the old religions and wars and conflicts because of religious, ethnic, racial differences and other issues, etc., which caused war, and no religion over another There is no superiority.All religions lived in order to guide mankind to the right and true path.They came so that people should have good deeds and good behavior.Whether these principles came from God or from earthly people, we must be righteous and righteous.I was 17 years old.We went to Haq Azar Middle School, Tehran, Pars Khazarin, 117. I shouldn’t bring up these issues, but there are many issues that I am tied to time, but you say, well, what is the use of these things thatGod has given me time on earth to to be chosen by the world as a savior and executor to guide the people of Iran and let the elders of the world accept my proxy so that I can put forward the divine orders through the orders of the religionand the new religion that God has revealed to me.Lord, so that justice is done and realized, and Muslims, especially in the Middle East, do not fight over old religions, because wherever Islam was, the Muslim men of those Muslim countries were fighting, why should people still fight over religious issues andIslamic prejudices, Israel and Palestine.And why did Iran and Iraq go to war?How do I own time?Now there are signs in my birth date.When I multiply my date of birth from beginning to end, it is equal to the speed of the earth.It is obtained in one second and one hour.The speed of the earth and the speed of light are obtained in one second and one hour

    And these are all related to time.From the day, month, year, to the decade of my birth, multiply it and get the time ruler.In the combination of the birth of my father who is Muhammad and he was born on the 17th and I was born on the 43rd with the birth My father, who is 17 years old, and my birthday, which is 43, are combined.60 and sixty seconds in a minute and sixty minutes in an hour.It may be 360 ​​and I was 17 in 360. These issues in the date of my son’s birth are combined with my own date of birth., my wife’s date of birth is complicated with birth certificate number and my date.Birthday with my wife and son, combining the date of birth of my paternal family members with me and dozens of such things.He thought how to do God’s work.Work May the gods of the world be so precise that all this is shown to me, compared to the work of the gods and lords of the world, it is very strange and amazing and immeasurable, this is how Iran is connected to the earth.It was connected and has a strange meaning.The old word Iran-earth I remember 52 years.Before the start of the nationwide program of the Iranian television network, which started working, the logo of the program was Iranzmin, the name of the program of the first channel of Iranzmin and Iran was a message to all the countries of the earth.In terms of the language of the gods and lords of the earth, there are many words.I have to say because I have to tell and tell the truths of the gods of the earth.Why am I the owner of time, because I know from the future what will happen in the world and what will come to the earth and what will be the order of the gods of the earth for the superpowers of the world and my religions.I am saying important things, but those who were from the Iranian army were shot in 1958 and 1957 by Imam Khomeini (RA) and the leadership of the Assembly of Experts.The execution and shooting of generals were done by the Ayatollahs, but why America and England?did not stop them from being executed, know that the structure of the gods made by humans is so detailed that I believe there are forty of your gods.It still appears in various forms.I could not understa
