Listen: Sirius Xm, New Mexico discussed on Newsradio 950 WWJ 24 Hour News
"Start a March fifteen. When astronomers look at the universe stuff often gets in the way from clouds airplanes to asteroids, and the operators have an extensive new survey of the sky have something else to avoid the satellites that broadcast Sirius XM radio the sky survey is using the very large array a collection of twenty seven radio antennas in New Mexico to make the most detailed radio maps of the sky ever. But the satellites broadcast at some of the same frequencies, the V L A is studying in fact, the satellites produced so much energy that they can swamp the observations so operators have to be sure to aim away from the satellites over the next few years. The LA survey will scan the entire sky three times the radio telescope. We'll stare at half of the sky at a time more than a month of observations per scan that will reveal objects that are. Painter and farther away and ever before millions of targets in all the lists will include exploding stars. And the mergers of stellar corpses. Known as neutron stars. The survey also will examine jets of particles blasting away from the black holes at the hearts of many galaxies. The jets can zap clouds of gas that might form new stars shutting down the process of starburst. The survey also will map magnetic fields in space and peer through clouds of dust in our own galaxy to help map at structure."
