The central array of Australian Square Kilometer Array Pathfinder (ASKAP) radio telescope under the center of our Milky Way galaxy. ASKAP comprises 36 radio dishes, each with a diameter of 12 meters, making the telescope sensitive to faint radiation from the Milky Way and giving it the ability to detect very distant galaxies.
