Earlier this month, scientists and astronomers were successful at detecting three new fast radio burst signals. However, what makes one of them particularly interesting is that it’s the most powerful fast radio burst ever captured.

According to the report in Science Alert, the fast radio burst (FRB) signal was the highest ever recorded since they were initially spotted in 2007. The newly discovered signal is referred to as FRB 18309. The astronomers observed it on March 9 after observing another signal FRB 180301 on March 1. Signal FRB 180311 was observed two days later on March 11. The signals were named after the day they were observed.

Astronomers used Parkes Observatory radio telescope that is located in New South Wal
