Media Release: We've revealed a galaxy far, far away...

Astronomers have revealed a galaxy five billion light-years away, using CSIRO’s newest radio telescope, the Australian SKA Pathfinder, in remote Western Australia.

CSIRO's Dr James Allison led a research team using ASKAP and the unique radio quietness of the Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory (MRO), to crack open a window to a little-explored period of the Universe's history.

"At many observatories, this would have been hidden by background radio noise, but our site is so radio quiet it stood out clearly," Dr Allison said, "These latest research findings are demonstrating that ASKAP can do what other telescopes can't.”
