|Tribute to Bruce Slee|
|by Joss Bland-Hawthorn (Sydney University)|
|The first demonstration of radio
interferometry in astronomy came from "sea interferometry" by
Bolton and Slee in 1947 at Dover Heights. |
The Yagi antenna looks out to sea from atop the cliffs. As Cygnus A rose above the horizon, the signal detected directly interfered with the signal reflected off the ocean.
