November 26, 2019

Astrophysicist Dr. Natasha Hurley-Walker, from the Curtin University node of the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR), created the images using the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre in Perth. "This new view captures low-frequency radio emission from our galaxy, looking both in fine detail and at larger structures," she said. "Our images are looking directly at the middle of the Milky Way, towards a region astronomers call the galactic center."
