Astronomers propose a cell phone search for galactic fast radio bursts

Fast radio bursts seem to come from distant galaxies, but there is no obvious reason that, every once in a while, an FRB wouldn’t occur in our own Milky Way galaxy too. If it did, astronomers suggest that it would be ‘loud’ enough that a global network of cell phones or small radio receivers could ‘hear’ it.
