Fast Radio Bursts: The Story So Far

Abstract:

Fast radio bursts are anomalously dispersed millisecond-duration pulses of unknown origin that were discovered by pulsar astronomers in 2007. Almost a decade on from the discovery, with only a dozen examples currently known, fast radio bursts remain enigmatic sources which parallel the early days of gamma-ray burst astronomy in the early 1970s. I will describe the science opportunities these phenomena present, and discuss the challenges and opportunities presented in their discovery.
