Open Dome Event – FAST - 500m Chinese Radio Telescope

Clock icon
20:00 – 22:00 27 Oct 2016
Location icon
CELS, Nottingham Trent University, NG11 8NS

Huge single-dish radio telescopes are rare, with the 300m Arecibo dish built in a valley being the largest example. But no more – China has completed a huge 500m single dish, the size of 30 football pitches.

Dr. D Brown, NTU, will talk about why we need such large radio telescopes and the challenges facing such a project. He will also look at how such projects impact upon the population living near and using these sites. This talk will be followed by a brief introduction to what is visible in this month's sky.

Booking is required for this event. While attending, you consent to filming, photography, and sound recording – which may include you as a member of the audience – and its use in publication or advertising distribution, either printed or online, without payment or copyright.
