In science:

The radio studies of M82 have revealed a population of compact radio sources (Unger et al., 1984; Kronberg et al., 1985) which were tentatively identified as being either radio supernovae (RSn) or supernova remnants (SNR).
Global VLBI Observations of Compact Radio Sources in M82
This spectral index is typical for radio background sources which are mainly AGN or radio quasars (Filipovi´c et al. 1998).
AGN in the XMM-Newton first-light image as probes for the interstellar medium in the LMC
Radio luminosity can be generated by AGN as well as star formation processes, and indeed the ma jority of apparently bright radio sources are AGN.

More than one of these mechanisms may be important in any particular aligned radio galaxy, and it is probably necessary to understand many high-z radio galaxies in terms of a combination of these processes.

Here we present the results of a program to use multicolor imaging, optical and infrared spectroscopy, and MERLIN and VLA radio maps to make a detailed study of this unusual powerful radio galaxy.
