A red, green, blue composite image of the Large Magellanic Cloud (left) and Small Magellanic Cloud (right) made from radio wavelength observations taken at 123MHz, 181MHz and 227MHz. At these wavelengths, emission from cosmic rays and the hot gases belonging to the star forming regions and supernova remnants of the galaxy are visible. Credit: ICRAR.

Telescope maps cosmic rays in large and small magellanic clouds

A radio telescope in outback Western Australia has been utilized to watch radiation from infinite beams in two neighboring cosmic systems, demonstrating zones of...
A ‘radio colour’ view of the sky above a ‘tile’ of the Murchison Widefield Array radio telescope, located in outback Western Australia. The Milky Way is visible as a band across the sky and the dots beyond are some of the 300,000 galaxies observed by the telescope for the GLEAM survey. Red indicates the lowest frequencies, green the middle frequencies and blue the highest frequencies. Credit: Radio image by Natasha Hurley-Walker (ICRAR/Curtin) and the GLEAM Team.
