Scientists released this image to inaugurate the completed MeerKAT radio telescope. But these scopes form part of an even more ambitious project: The Square Kilometre Array, a joint effort to build the world’s largest telescope, spanning the continents of Africa and Australia.

This image shows filaments of particles, structures that seem to exist in alignment with the galaxy’s central black hole.
