The Radio Pulse FRB 150807 (IMAGE) International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research Caption The color shows the frequency of the waves, which is like the color of light. The brightness varies with frequency due to a process termed "scintillation," which is caused by the twinkling of the burst in the cosmic web. This scintillation is the fingerprint of turbulence in the cosmic web and tells us that web is very placid.
