Over the past dozen years, scientists have been finding enigmatic, fleeting signals called fast radio bursts, or FRBs, by poring over previous observations for the bright blips that come from the other side of the cosmos. Now, for the first time, the powerful flashes of radio waves have been picked up the moment they arrive at Earth.

“It’s not about the empire anymore, it’s not about Lucious anymore, it’s not about our kids,” she said. “It’s about her.” An anonymous post to the notorious 4chan imageboard on Saturday appears to have provided details of Jeffrey Epstein's death before the first news reports of the disgraced financier's suspected suicide. The 4chan post, which was earlier reported by Buzzfeed News, was published more than a half hour before the initial news reports that Epstein, who was held on charges of sex trafficking, was dead.
