Astronomers witness slow death of nearby galaxy

Astronomers from ANU and CSIRO have witnessed, in the finest detail ever, the slow death of the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC), which is gradually losing its power to form stars. Published in Nature Astronomy, the new study uses images captured with our ASKAP radio telescope. Lead researcher Professor Naomi McClure-Griffiths from ANU said the features of the radio images were more than three times finer than previous SMC images, which allowed the team to probe the interactions between the small galaxy and its environment with more accuracy.
