Australian researchers pioneer a Google street view of galaxies
Sydney, Australia (SPX) Jul 28, 2014
A new home-grown instrument based on bundles of optical fibres is giving Australian astronomers the first 'Google street view' of the cosmos - incredibly detailed views of huge numbers of galaxies. Developed by researchers at the University of Sydney and the Australian Astronomical Observatory, the optical-fibre bundles can sample the light from up to 60 parts of a galaxy, for a dozen galaxies at a time. By analysing the light's spectrum astronomers can learn how gas and stars move within ea ... read more
