  4. Fourier-plane modeling of the jet in the nucleus of galaxy M81
    Ramessur, Arvind, 2018-04-25T13:05:09Z
    The mildly active nuclear region in the galaxy M81 (henceforth, M81‹) is one of the nearest low-luminosity active galactic nuclei (LLAGN) whose structure is marginally resolved when probed with Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI). Motivated by the way resolved radio sources usually appear on ...

    Kirkam, Kechil, 2018-04-24T13:48:46Z, University of Cape Town
    Space-derived data lies untouched in data vaults, while many potential use cases for space applications are not exploited by the space industry. This gap may exist because the conceptualisation of the user in the satellite industry is too narrow, and yet influences the architecture and thence outcom ...
