NEW, MORE DETAILED VERSION OF THIS IMAGE IS AVAILABLE AS SPL PHOTO No. R800/103MPI] Computer-processed radio map of the whole sky at the 73 cm wavelength. Intensity of radio emission is coded from red (maximum emission) through to black. The red horizontal band is the plane of our Milky Way galaxy. The projection used is a normal way of looking at the outside of a sphere, such as Earth; here, however, we are at the centre of the sphere & looking out at the universe all around us. The map was made using data from the Jodrell Bank, Effelsberg & Parkes radio telescopes in England, Germany & Australia respectively.
