New stunning image of the Milky Way


Astronomers using a radio telescope in Western Australia have captured a stunning new view of our Milky Way galaxy. The image taken of the heart of the galactic center is from the Murchison Widefield Array and reveals what humans would see if our eyes processed radio waves. “This new view captures low-frequency radio emission from our galaxy, looking both in fine detail and at larger structures,” said Astrophysicist Dr Natasha Hurley-Walker, from the Curtin University node of the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR).
