The stunning new image from the MeerKAT telescope in South Africa captures powerful radio radiation traveling through space. Radio emission
comes from a huge spinning black hole at the center of an elliptical galaxy called IC 4296. The energy released by matter falling into the black hole creates two high-energy gas jets on either side of the galaxy, creating also known as double lobe radio galaxies.
Using the MeerKAT telescope of the South African Radio Astronomical Observatory (SARAO) in the Karoo region of the south-west of the country, the researchers detected radio waves from IC 4296 and other unique cosmic features that may reveal new clues about large radio galaxies, according to SARAO statement of the report.

Recent observations from IC 4296 indicate that the radio jet becomes unstable as it extends beyond the periphery of the Milky Way, allowing some charged electrons to escape into interstellar space. These stray electrons produced several faint radio “wires” that appeared below the galaxy in the new image. Radio
MeerKAT data, represented by the orange-red gas in the composite image, also captured the bright emission jets and the soft “bands” between the outer lobes on either side of the galaxy. The radius lobe is caused by the interaction of the jet with its surrounding medium. The tape fills the channels formed by the jet in the surrounding air. The statement said that at a distance of nearly 1 million light-years from IC 4296, these ribbons met with interstellar gas, forming a “smoke ring” in the radio lobe.
The lead author of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory’s study, Jim Condon, said in a statement: “Only the unique combination of MeerKAT’s sensitivity, angular resolution, and dynamic range can detect these lines, bands, and loops.”
According to SARAO’s statement, MeerKAT recently The intergalactic lines, bands, and rings captured in the radio data represent an unprecedented combination of cosmic features. From May 25 to June 1, 2020, the

South Africa’s MeerKAT radio telescope saw its first light in 2018. It is the pioneer of the Square Kilometer Array (SKA), which is designed to answer basic astrophysics questions about the nature of objects in the universe. Dish antennas are all over South Africa. And Australia.
“It is clear that the new results from MeerKAT and other SKA Pathfinders will completely change our understanding of Hewai Wireless Power,” according to the statement. The most recent discovery of
has been accepted for publication in the Astrophysical Journal.
