LOFAR and the galaxies of the young Universe

International team of astronomers, including scientists from the Astronomical Observatory of the Jagiellonian University, has published the most accurate map of the Universe at low radio frequencies, created with the use of the European LOFAR radio telescope. As a result, it was possible to detect the faint radio glow from the stars that exploded as supernovae in tens of thousands of ancient galaxies spread out to the farthest regions of the Universe.
