Radio telescope has mapped star formation galaxies

The South African Radio Astronomy Observatory’s MeerKAT telescope recently mapped radio emissions in an area of sky about the size of five full moons and revealed tens of thousands of star-forming galaxies that date to this period in our universe’s history.

MeerKAT is a precursor to the Square Kilometre Array, a planned collection of thousands of radio dishes in Australia and Africa that conducts a huge survey of the sky in radio wavelengths.

With this kind of images, astronomers, will learn more about star formation and about the history of universe. From the MeerKAT images, astronomers are already finding that galaxies may have been forming even more stars than they previously thought, according to a press release from the Nation Radio Astronomy Observatory.
