Researchers at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) have released a spectacular new render of the first James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) image. Utilising specialised software, the new image shows the incredible capabilities of the JWST and the how deeply it can search the universe.
A radio telescope in remote Western Australia is helping to build a 3D map of the night sky, mapping galaxies up to a billion light years away.
A team of Western Australian researchers have found a way to avoid the need to use radio transmitters in critical communications, using new technology featuring super-fast optical lasers.
A powerful radio-wave laser, called a ‘megamaser’, has been observed by the MeerKAT telescope in South Africa.
A team mapping radio waves in the Universe has discovered something unusual that releases a giant burst of energy three times an hour, and it’s unlike anything astronomers have seen before. The team who discovered it think it could be a neutron star or a white dwarf—collapsed cores of stars—with an ultra-powerful magnetic field.
