Breakthrough Listen

(SETI survey using GBT and Parkes Observatory)

Breakthrough Listen is a SETI survey using the Green Bank Telescope and Parkes Observatory to search for radio signals from intelligent extraterrestrial life. In the search, they have picked up a fast radio burst (FRB) sometimes referred to as GB-BL. Their goal of covering a wide spectral band for the purposes of their search has been useful in providing a multi-wavelength recording of an FRB.
