Monthly Meeting – April – The Golden Age of Radio Astronomy
08/04/2019 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Golden Age of Radio Astronomy: Telescopes, Arrays, SKA and Beyond
Sergei Gulyaev is Professor of Astronomy at the Auckland University of Technology and Founding Director of the Institute for Radio Astronomy and Space Research. In his talk Sergei will outline the current status of radio astronomy both as science and technology. New radio telescopes united into intercontinental and global networks, compact arrays of radio telescopes, new instruments in the phases of design or construction – all contribute towards better understanding of objects and processes in the Cosmos. The talk will update on recent discoveries, and on the status of the most ambitious radio astronomy project of our time – the Square Kilometre Array.
The meeting will be followed by supper.
