By observing the universe at low radio frequencies, astronomers can now specify with greater accuracy the number of new stars being formed in the early universe, establish a correlation between the brightness of galaxies on the low radio images and the rate of star formation as well as analyse emissions from around massive black holes or the collision of galaxies.
Polish astronomers will receive almost EUR 14 million in a grant from the European Research Council (ERC) for astronomical research and to build a telescope in Chile, the Polish Academy of Sciences (PAN) has announced.
A rocket packing Polish instruments will blast off on February 9 on a one-way mission to the Sun in an effort to answer some of the biggest questions surrounding our system’s star.
Black hole hunter Dr. Monika Mościbrodzka who was involved in the project said the image “was captured by eight telescopes that created a virtual telescope the size of Earth.
The new x-ray telescope will allow scientists to look into the deep universe where the first gas structures and super massive black holes formed.
