The SKA-low site
by Lister Staveley-Smith (ICRAR)
A recent visit to the Murchison Radioastronomy Observatory (MRO) by (from left to right) Giovanni Bignami (SKA Board chair), Patricia Kelley (DIIS Deputy Secretary, Australian SKA Board member), Jane Urquart (DIIS Head of Science and Commercialisation Policy), Ant Schinckel (ASKAP Director), Phil Diamond (SKA DG), Lister Staveley-Smith (ICRAR) and Tom Booler (ICRAR). The comprehensive visit included the RFI shielded Control Building, ASKAP, the newly-upgraded core of MWA, the recently commissioned MRO solar/diesel Horizon Power station and the SKA-low proposed core site. The visitors were also delighted by the unusually abundant wildflowers of the season.
