University of Richmond Astrophysicist Jack Singal Awarded Nearly 600K NSF Grant for Groundbreaking Radio Sky Astronomy Project 08/02/2023

Jack Singal, associate professor of physics, along with Richard Bradley, a senior scientist and senior research engineer at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO), received $589,939 in multi-year research funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

The research project will result in a new map focused on the sky brightness in radio waves. The map will be the first large-scale measurement of the actual absolute brightness level of diffuse radio emission in more than 40 years, rather than a comparison of brightness in different regions of the sky as has been typical.
