The detection also triggered a powerful example of another new trend, multimessenger astronomy, in which telescopes and other instruments studied the flaring blazar in all parts of the electromagnetic spectrum, from gamma rays to radio waves.
Quasars emit mostly radio waves, which have the longest wavelengths in the electromagnetic spectrum, much longer than those of visible light.
While some hospitals have moved to secure, encrypted pager systems, others are still sending information over open radio waves that could include a patient's name, date of birth and medical diagnosis.
Instead of using electromagnetic radiation to produce imagery, the researchers have found a way to use low-power radio waves to track the movement and figure of humans through a wall.

Bowman’s instrument, like the others involved in the search, attempts to pick out a particular dip in radio waves coming from the distant universe.
The technology, which uses artificial intelligence to interpret radio wave data, grows out of earlier work by the same group.
Now a new study, published in Nature, has tested the principle using a remarkably extreme astrophysical environment: a triple star system containing two white dwarfs and a pulsar (a rotating neutron star that beams radio waves).
