Presentation Transcript

Slide 1

Noteworthy RADIO ASTRONOMY WORKING GROUP GOALS This WG was shaped at the 2003 General Assembly of the IAU as a joint activity of Commissions 40 (Radio Astronomy) and 41 (History of Astronomy), so as to gather an ace rundown of surviving verifiably critical radio telescopes and related instrumentation discovered around the world, and archive the specialized particulars and logical accomplishments of these instruments. What's more, it would keep up an on-going list of sources of productions on the historical backdrop of radio space science, and screen different improvements identifying with the historical backdrop of radio cosmology ( including the passings of spearheading radio stargazers).

Slide 2

HISTORIC RADIO ASTRONOMY WORKING GROUP Preservation of Historically-Significant Radio Telescopes and Associated Relics Stanford University: five 60-ft reception apparatuses at field station off Highway 280 destroyed yet … the solid wharfs with cut names of surely understood stargazers & radio cosmologists are protected.
