Karl Guthe was born in Norman, Oklahoma back in 1905 to Cyril and Nellie. He attended college at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. After getting his BS in physics he worked for bell Telephone Laboratories in Holmdel, New Jersey.
His job assignment was investigating the sources of static that would interfere with radio voice transmissions. He built an antenna designed to receive radio waves. It was mounted on a turntable allowing it to be rotated in any direction. By rotating the antenna on a set of Ford Model-T tires the general direction of a received signal could be pinpointed, that is except for one.
After recording signals for several months, he determined the signal intensity rose and fell only once a day. The cycle was 23 hours and 56 minutes, the equivalent of the rotation of the earth. By comparing observation with optical astronomical maps, he determined the signal was coming from the Milky Way in the constellation of Sagittarius. Thus, Karl Guthe Jansky was the first person to discover radio waves from outer space. He is considered one of the founding figures of radio astronomy.
