Radio telescope in South Korea to make the first high-resolution observations

A team of astronomers used a radio telescope in South Korea to make the first high-resolution observations of the molecular clouds within a star-forming region of the Milky Way.

Astronomers from the United States and South Korea have made the first high-resolution, radio telescope observations of the molecular clouds within a massive star-forming region of the outer Milky Way. They used a newly commissioned radio telescope at the Taeduk Radio Astronomy Observatory in South Korea to take high resolution, carbon monoxide observation of the galactic region’s molecular clouds.

The astronomers also compared their radio observation with existing infrared data from the Wire-field Infrared Survey Explorer and the Two Micron All Sky Survey. The infrared data allowed them to classify young stars forming within the region’s molecular clouds.
