This broad project aims to extract valuable science from the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA), with particular focus on:

  • Characterising enigmatic objects such as pulsars and fast radio transients;
  • Observations from the Epoch of Reionisation – a cosmic period 13 billion years ago when the first stars and galaxies formed; and
  • Galaxies – by surveying the entire southern hemisphere sky, the MWA will make in-depth observations of our own galaxy and external galaxies, allowing ICRAR scientists to map the Universe in greater detail than ever before.
