An article published in the journal “Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society” reports a review of radio galaxies discovered 47 years ago using two of the most powerful radio telescopes currently in service. A team of researchers used the uGMRT and MeerKAT radio telescopes to conduct the new observations. The first author is astronomer Bernie Fanaroff, who began the study of radio galaxies and classified them together with astrophysicist Julia Riley.
