MeerKAT Fornax Survey

goals & design

We use the MeerKAT telescope to observe neutral hydrogen and radio continuum in the nearby cluster of galaxies Fornax. We want to study how galaxies in Fornax interact with one another and with the intra-cluster medium, and reveal their connection with gas in the cosmic web.
