ASKAP Recap: the journey so far with our newest radio telescope
Australia’s ASKAP radio telescope has had an amazing year breaking records, receiving awards and finding new objects, all whilst still in its pilot phase.
Hear from the scientists using ASKAP every day to further their studies, and from those working to shape ASKAP into a truly remarkable national facility. There will also be trivia, astronomy cameos, art and stellar imagery.
Discover how an Earth-based telescope can assist astronomers in a way we didn’t know was possible a decade ago. As a precursor instrument to the SKA project – what will be the largest telescopes the world has ever seen – the lessons we’ve learnt from ASKAP are informing the next stages of radio astronomy.
