A catalog of the extended extragalactic radio sources consisting of 10461 objects is compiled based on the list of radio sources of the FIRST survey. A total of 1801 objects are identified with galaxies and quasars of the SDSS survey and the Veron-Veron catalog. The distribution of the position angles of the axes of radio sources from the catalog is determined, and the probability that this distribution is equiprobable is shown to be less then 10^(-7). This result implies that at Z equal to or smaller then 0.5, spatial orientation of the axes of radio sources is anisotropic at a statistically significant level. Comment: 8 pages, 7 figures

    ABSTRACT: An analysis of the position angles distribution of 10461 extended radio sources shows that the spatial orientation of the axes of these objects is anisotropic: they avoid the direction towards the Celestial Pole and are mostly oriented in the equatorial direction. The ratio of the probability densities of the orientation in these two directions is 0.68. The probability that the sky distribution of axes is isotropic is less then 0.00004. This conclusion is consistent with the results of the analyses of the spatial distribution of galactic normals orientation in the galaxies from UGC, ESO and FGC catalogs Comment: 7 pages, 6 figures

    ABSTRACT: In this paper the next attempt is made to clarify the nature of the Euclidean behavior of the boundary in the angular size-redshift cosmological test. It is shown experimentally that this can be explained by the selection determined by anisotropic morphology and anisotropic radiation of extended radio sources. A catalogue of extended radio sources with minimal flux densities of about 0.01 Jy at 1.4 GHz was compiled for conducting the test. Without the assumption of their size evolution, the agreement between the experiment and calculation was obtained both in the Lambda CDM model (Omega_m=0.27 , Omega_v=0.73.) and the Friedman model (Omega = 0.1 ).

    ABSTRACT: We report the results of the spectroscopic observations carried out at the SAO RAS 6-m telescope for the optical components of nine new extended radio sources found in the NVSS catalog. The measured redshifts of the host galaxies are in the range of z=0.1-0.4. The physical sizes of radio sources were calculated within the standard cosmological model. The two most extended objects, 0003+1512 and 0422+0351 reach the sizes of 2.1 Mpc and 4.0 Mpc, respectively. This is close to the maximum size of known radio sources.
