Upgraded GMRT measures the atomic hydrogen mass in distant galaxies.

A team of astronomers from the National Centre for Radio Astrophysics (NCRA-TIFR) in Pune, and the Raman Research Institute (RRI), in Bangalore, has used the upgraded Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (GMRT) to measure the atomic hydrogen content of galaxies seen as they were 8 billion years ago, when the universe was young. This is the earliest epoch in the universe for which there is a measurement of the atomic gas content of galaxies.

Indian scientists discover long sought tiny explosions on the Sun

A group of scientists working at the National Centre for Radio Astrophysics (NCRA), Pune have recently discovered tiny flashes of radio light from all over the Sun. They have identified the smoking guns for these small magnetic explosions and hence the first ever evidence for their existence in explaining the long pending coronal heating problem. June 2020

GMRT discovers a gigantic ring of hydrogen gas around a distant galaxy

A team of astronomers at the National Centre for Radio Astrophysics (NCRA), Pune have discovered a mysterious ring of hydrogen gas around a distant galaxy, using the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (GMRT). The ring is much bigger than the galaxy it surrounds, and has diameter about 4 times that of our Milky Way. - January 2020
