The Radio Universe @ Ger’s (wave)-length

The Radio Universe @ Ger’s (wave)-length

Radio astronomy at very low frequencies is currently undergoing a major revolution. A number of radio interferometers have been recently built/upgraded (e.g., LOFAR, MWA, GMRT) or under planning (SKA) that will explore the Universe at low frequencies in unprecedented sensitivity, resolution and field of view. These images facilitate the exploration of a large number of…
