Early science with the murchison widefield array : from the moon to the nearest radio galaxies
This thesis reports on new scientific results gleaned from test observations of well-known astronomical sources with the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) telescope. Presented are three self-contained papers that demonstrate the capabilities of this recently commissioned radio interferometer array and provide new insights into the astrophysics of the Moon, Centaurus A and Fornax A at low frequencies. One of the main scientific goals of the MWA is the detection of the redshifted 21-cm line of...[Show more]
