Epoch of Reionization Dataset

astronomy

Description

The data are from observations with the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) which is a Square Kilometer Array (SKA) precursor in Western Australia. This particular dataset is from the Epoch of Reionization project which is a key science driver of the SKA. Nearly 2PB of such observations have been recorded to date, this is a small subset of that which has been exported from the MWA data archive in Perth and made available to the public on AWS. The data were taken to detect signatures of the first stars and galaxies forming and the effect of these early stars and galaxies on the evolution of the universe.
