CHIME Radio Telescope publishes new list of 500+ fast radio bursts

on blog at

CHIME has been my favorite radio telescope since before they even started looking for fast radio bursts. I really like the idea of using line focus from parabolic cylinders. It's obviously the most economical way to get a huge collection area/aperture. I've heard that reflections down the long axis are a problem for some CHIME uses but apparently for detecting fast radio bursts it's not. They just published The First CHIME/FRB Fast Radio Burst Catalog on arxiv and a summary article on was on the hackernews frontpage. It looks like they really will end up detecting a FRB per day.
