SKA Pathfinder Video

I’m a radio astronomer, which is pretty obvious if you know me or have ever looked at my blog before, and sometimes I find it hard to properly explain what I do – especially since my current work is based on a telescope that is still in the design stages (the Square Kilometre Array). One of the pathfinder telescopes to the SKA is ASKAP (the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder, imaginative name, eh?!). Anyway the ASKAP guys have a cool movie showing the design of the telescope… so if you have ever wonder what the heck I’m going on about maybe this will help:
