Mickey Mouse in RGZ

Screen Shot 2015-08-19 at 3.06.23 PM

Mickey Mouse appeared in Radio Galaxy Zoo earlier this month!

An explanation of the cartoon-murine shape has been provided by project scientist Julie Banfield: “Something is bending the radio jets and lobes to make this shape. Usually a result of the host galaxy and the environment the radio source lives in.”
