Come to ALMA @ the Royal Society SSE
From the 3rd to 8th July 2012 at the Royal Society in London you’ll be able to see some of the most exciting cutting-edge science and technology in the UK. I’m involved in one of the stands this year, helping to write some software to show how radio telescopes work. I’ll be around on the stand from 4th to the morning of the 7th.
The cutting-edge science we are showing of is ALMA – the Atacama Large Millimetre Array. This is an epic telescope consisting of 66 dishes working in a rather inhospitable environment, almost halfway into space. There is a blog [over on tumblr] that I’m helping with – there is some cool ALMA related posts – but much more can be found on the exhibition pages.
