A search for giant radio galaxies in recent deep radio surveys.
Giant Radio Galaxies (GRG) are those whose linear size projected on the sky exceeds one Megaparsec (1 Mpc = 3.09e22 m = 3.3 million light years). Since only about 300 of these have been reported in literature, we used two recent deep radio surveys to search for further examples of these rare objects. Here we describe the discovery of several new GRGs in these surveys.
