A Supernova Remnant in the Large Magellanic Cloud

Naturevolume 199page681 (1963) | Download Citation



THE proximity of the Large Magellanic Cloud offers an unparalleled opportunity for the detailed comparison of an external galaxy at optical and radio wave-lengths. Recently the 210-ft. steerable reflector at the Australian National Radio Astronomy Observatory has been used to survey the Large Cloud at a number of wave-lengths between 11 cm and 220 cm. The results of this work have been presented at the recent International Astronomical Union/International Scientific Radio Union Symposium No. 20 (ref. 1).
