Story by Elizabeth Rhodes

WVU faculty, students and interns watch the live NANOGrav announcement.

Astronomers find multiple microsecond-length fast radio bursts in GBT data

Full-polarization, frequency-averaged profiles and polarization position angles (PPAs) for a selection of bursts. The top row shows the three brightest ultra-FRBs and the bottom row shows the three highest S/N millisecond-duration bursts. The profiles of the bursts (bottom panels) show the total intensity (Stokes I) in black, circular polarization (Stokes V) in blue and the Faraday-rotation-corrected unbiased linear polarization in red.
