  • Hundreds Of New Galaxies Discovered Behind Milky Way

    The Milky Way is seen in the night sky in the White Desert north of the Farafra Oasis near Cairo, Egypt. (Reuters)


    A new telescope view has revealed hundreds of galaxies that were previously obscured by the Milky Way's bulk.
    Scientists used an Australian radio telescope famous for assisting with the moon landings to peer through the gas and dust of the Milky Way, and uncovered 883 galaxies hidden behind it one-third of which were never observed before. You can see how the hidden galaxies were found in this video.

      True, oh grumpy one, but it is a drop more than we had before, and we are left to p0nder what else is hidden behind the Milky Way, nicht wahr?

              If you have a view like I do a drop of water is the cosmos.

                That restrictive, eh?

                Come on, Bwaha, I know you've still got some romance and mystery buried deep inside your soul under that crusty outer layer. Let it out once in a while!

                    Nope the ex killed the romance bit and as far as mystery, well I'll let you wonder...

                    I just did a old man maneuver, tripped on a concrete pad and did a face first landing.

                    Ouch. Off to see the Doc. I think I broke my jaw...

                        I do, but the forum rules forbid me to describe it.

                          If you really broke your jaw you wouldn't be typing posts on this forum before going to the hospital.

                            Actually I was hoping that it wasn't and so I just iced it first. Didn't go to the hospital anyway. Just saw the Doc today and now I'm headed for x-rays tomorrow. There's not much they can do about it. Why go to the ER when you'll live...

                            Meh I've had worse before. I think its a hairline fracture, its still swollen so the Doc wants me to get it checked out... But I'll survive it, like I said I've gotten way more painful stuff in the dojo...

                              Wow! Talk about staying on topic...


                              The "trick" of seeing these galaxies is that radio waves at the "right" frequencies can penetrate the DUST that obscures our view of objects on the other side of the galaxy. This dust absorbs visible light (hence the black areas in a galaxy) and infrared, in particular.

                              The 21 cm line (1.42 GHz) is particular to protons (monatomic Hydrogen) which dominates the signature of galaxies. (Same Hydrogen that makes the Sun/Sol and Stars).

                              I was most impressed by the fact that the OLD, Parkes radio telescope can improve it's performance by a factor of 13x by putting on modern "front-end" (receiver) electronics.

                              This is because of the MB20 multifeed system. Very interesting!

                              These are the rest of the Parkes receivers. I'm impressed with their versatility, it shows they have kept up with the technology over the decades.
