Fast Radio Bursts Piercing Gaseous Halos Around Galaxies

Powerful Radio Pulses Originating Deep in the Cosmos Probe Hidden Matter Around Galaxies

This artist’s concept shows distant fast radio bursts piercing the gaseous halos around galaxies in the local universe. The radio bursts are depicted traveling from the distant cosmos, through the galactic halos, and finally reaching telescopes on Earth. The bumps seen in two of the lines represent the radio burst themselves as they travel toward …
