- Insight-HXMT Gives Insight into Origin of Fast Radio Bursts
(2021/02/24)Insight-HXMT detected a very bright X-ray burst from SGR J1935+2154. This X-ray burst was also detected by the European satellite INTEGRALwhich is a magnetar in our Milky Way.Insight-HXMT is the first to identify the double-spike structure of this X-ray burst as the high energy counterpart of FRB 200428. This discoverythus proving that both the X-ray burst and FRB 200428 originated from magnetar SGR J1935+2154. This represents not only the first confirmed source of an FRBThe latest observations
