Further consideration of the data obtained during observations on interstellar interference has shown that these radiations are received any time the antenna system is directed towards some part of the Milky Way system, the greatest response being obtained when the antenna points towards the center of the system. This fact leads to the conclusion that the source of these radiations is located in the stars themselves or in the interstellar matter distributed throughout the Milky Way. Because of… Expand
Microwave Radiation from the Sun
During the summer months of both 1942 and 1943, the writer and certain of his associates observed a small but measurable amount of microwave radiation coming from the sun. This appeared as randomExpand

In 1932 Jansky published the first of a series of papers indicating that a certain type of static appears to come from space and in particular from the plane of the Milky Way. Very few other data areExpand
The 74 MHz System on the Very Large Array
The Naval Research Laboratory and the National Radio Astronomy Observatory completed implementation of a low-frequency capability on the Very Large Array at 73.8 MHz in 1998. This frequency bandExpand
Radio astronomy has a wide electromagnetic spectrum. It is based on antennas, electronics, software etc., and thus highly technical. The radio data obtained from distant objects like stars, galaxies,Expand
A New Window on the Universe
In April 1933, at a small gathering at a meeting of the US National Committee of the International Scientific Radio Union (URSI), Bell Labs scientist Karl Guthe Jansky announced that he had detectedExpand
The Canterbury University ST atmospheric radar development: design and feasibility
This thesis describes the design of several components of a proposed VHF radar system for the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Canterbury, New Zealand. A suite of software forExpand
John Bolton was born in Sheffield in 1922 and educated at Cambridge University. After wartime service in the Royal Navy, in 1946 he joined the CSIRO‘s Radiophysics Laboratory in Sydney and began workExpand

A general description of the nature of radio astronomy, its differences from optical astronomy, a review of the earliest beginnings of galactic and solar radio astronomy, and a listing of otherExpand
Active Galactic Nuclei and Pulsars
With the discovery of radio emission of extraterrestrial origin, it had opened a new and broader window in the electromagnetic spectrum to observe the sky. Two of the common sources of radioExpand
Grote Reber (1911–2002)
Following the 1933 report by Karl Janksy of the detection of cosmic radio emission, Grote Reber, working by himself, designed and built the world's first radio telescope and established radioExpand


Electrical Disturbances Apparently of Extraterrestrial Origin
Electromagnetic waves of an unknown origin were detected during a series of experiments on atmospherics at high frequencies. Directional records have been taken of these waves for a period of over aExpand
