The discovery of periodicity in the arrival times of the fast radio bursts (FRB) from two repeating sources poses a potential challenge to oft studied magnetar scenarios. However, models which postulate that FRB emission results from relativistic magnetized shocks, or magnetic reconnection in a striped outflow, are not necessarily specific to magnetar engines, instead requiring only the impulsive injection of relativistic energy into a dense magnetized medium...
