Here’s another one of these time-lapse videos associated with astronomical facilities. It’s amazing how far the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP) has come, with all 36 antennas now on site, and a couple of them fitted with the phased-array feeds (PAFs). These PAFs function like a multi-pixel camera, enabling the ASKAP to view a… Read More ASKAP Time-Lapse
