Innovative science at its best
by Jill Rathborne (CASS)
Attendees at the CASS-AAO Women's Leadership course admire a Phased-Array Feed (PAFs) receiver being constructed for CSIRO's ASKAP radio telescope. PAFs deliver an unprecedented field of view (30 square degrees) and allow large-scale surveys of the sky. The first early science programs are now under way with ASKAP-12, aiming to study the gas content of nearby galaxy groups and clusters.
