Telescope used on Armstrong’s moon landing finds new galaxies
An Australian telescope wont to broadcast live vision of man’s initial steps on the moon in 1969 has found many new galaxies hidden behind the Milky Way by victimization associate innovative receiver that measures radio waves.
Scientists at the Parkes telescope, 355 metric linear unit (220 miles) west of state capital, same that they had detected 883 galaxies, a 3rd of that had ne’er been seen before. The findings were reportable within the latest issue of Astronomical Journal below the title ‘The Parkes HI Zone of shunning Survey’.
“Hundreds of recent galaxies were discovered, victimization a similar telescope that was wont to broadcast the TV photos from Phoebus eleven,” same Lister Staveley-Smith, a prof at the University of Western Australia’s International Center for astronomy analysis.
“The electronic technology at the rear finish is well completely different which is why we will still keep victimization these recent telescopes,” he said.
The discoveries occurred because the scientists were investigation the region’s shut proximity to the good Attractor, a gravity anomaly in part.
The Great Attractor seems to be drawing the Milky Way towards it with a attraction equivalent over 2 million metric linear unit per hour (1.24 million mph).
Using radio waves has allowed scientists to examine on the far side dirt and stars within the Milky Way that had antecedently blocked the read of telescopes, the study showed.
Staveley-Smith, the lead author on the Astronomical Journal, same scientists are attempting to induce to the lowest of the mysterious galaxy since major deviations from universal growth were initial discovered within the Nineteen Seventies and Eighties.
“It’s a missing a part of the puzzle, that is that the structure of our native universe,” same archangel Burton, a prof at the University of recent South Wales’ Physics faculty.
“They have managed to pierce through it and complete the image of what our a part of the universe seems like.”
