About this Event

World-renowned observational astrophysicist Vicky Kaspi will be talking about Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs): short bursts of radio waves , just a few milliseconds long, observed from cosmological distances. Their origin is presently unknown, yet their rate is many hundreds per sky per day, indicating a not-uncommon phenomenon in the Universe. Professor Kaspi will review the FRB field and present new results on FRBs from a new digital transit radio telescope: the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME).

The Hintze lectures highlight contemporary developments in astrophysics and cosmology and are generously funded by the Hintze Family Charitable Foundation.
