A team of scientists from the Ioffe Physical-Technical Institute, HSE University, Sternberg Astronomical Institute (SAI) and NASA announced the first simultaneous observation of a fast radio burst from a galactic object and its 'equivalent' in the X-ray range. The source direction of the burst coincides with the position of the active magnetar SGR 1935+2154, and analysis of the signal in the two energy bands will improve our understanding of the nature of fast radio burst phenomena. The results are published in the journal Nature Astronomy.
HSE University is accepting applications for the three-year project competition for the creation of international laboratories. The winners of the competition will receive annual funding of up to 13 million roubles to conduct research from 2022 to 2024.
