    Scientists using ASKAP, one of the most sensitive radio telescopes, captured the Large Magellanic Cloud, which is 158,200 light-years from Earth. The image showed thousands of previously unknown sources of radio signals - nearby stars and galaxies, billions of light-years from Earth.


    An international team of scientists has taken one of the clearest images of a dwarf spiral galaxy. During his analysis, they also studied the stars themselves that form the structure of the Large Magellanic Cloud, including the Tarantula Nebula, the most active star-forming region. The results of the study were published in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

    An international team of scientists has taken one of the clearest images of a dwarf spiral galaxy. During his analysis, they also studied the stars themselves that form the structure of the Large Magellanic Cloud, including the Tarantula Nebula, the most active star-forming region. The results of the study were published in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.


    Lead author Clara Pennock said the new crisp image reveals thousands of radio sources that scientists have never seen before, according to the press service of the University of Keele in the UK. Most of them are galaxies millions or even billions of light-years away from the Large Magellanic Cloud, she said. In many of these galaxies, stars are forming at a tremendous rate.


    Astronomers noted that with so many stars and nebulae, sharpened images played an important role. It was possible to see such sources of radio emission as young stars and planetary nebulae, which arise as a result of the death of stars such as the Sun.


    Due to its proximity to the Milky Way, the Large Magellanic Cloud is an excellent reference point for researchers studying fundamental questions such as the formation of stars and the structure of galaxies.


    Researchers are not going to be satisfied with what has already been achieved. These images are part of a large-scale work, during which forty million galaxies are to be discovered, which will be studied in detail.
