Scientists with the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME) Collaboration have assembled the largest collection of fast radio bursts (FRBs) in the telescope’s first FRB catalogue.
NEED AN UNKNOWN “Dark Energy” is causing the expansion rate to increase. The origin and physics of this Dark Energy are presently unknown. One way to probe the nature of Dark Energy is through studying in detail the expansion itself .CHIME will map the history of the expansion rate of the Universe by observing hydrogen gas in distant galaxies that were very strongly affected by Dark Energy.
CHIME is an interferometric radio telescope.
It is located in British Columbia, Canada.
It consists of four antennas consisting of 100 x 20 metre cylindrical parabolic reflectors with 1024 dual-polarization radio receivers suspended on a support above them.
The antenna receives radio waves from hydrogen in space at frequencies in the 400–800 MHz range.
