Using the Murchison Widefield Array, an Australian precursor to the Square Kilometre Array radio telescope, a team of researchers has mapped two neighbouring galaxies—the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds—in unprecedented detail, revealing cosmic rays from supernova remnants and hot gas belonging to star forming regions.

‘A Multi-Frequency Radio Continuum Study of the Magellanic Clouds. I. Overall Structure and Star Formation Rates’ was published in The Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society on September 4th, 2018.

The full media release and research paper are attached and supporting imagery is available at https://www.icrar.org/cosmic-rays/

Thank you, and have a great day.
