For the first time, an international team of archaeologists has applied a method developed to study space clusters to study ancient Islamic tombs in Sudan. The results showed that tombs in ancient times were built according to the same principles on which the structure of galaxies is based.
Astronomers using the SRT ground-based radio telescope have built the most detailed radio map of the Andromeda Galaxy. It made it possible to better study the structure of the galaxy and its properties, as well as to compile a catalog of background sources.
Can you tell where our planet is in the universe? Of course, planet Earth is in the Solar System, which in turn is in the Orion Arm, the small galactic arm of the Milky Way. Well, our own galaxy then? Did you know that it is part of the Laniakeа Supercluster along with tens of thousands of other galaxies?
The Event Horizon Telescope has obtained the most detailed image of relativistic jets erupting from the core of the Centaurus A radio galaxy. It turned out that the structure of the jets closely resembles the jet in the active galaxy M87 on a scale of up to five hundred gravitational radii of a black hole.
