A Celebration: Bruce Slee and 70 Years of Radio Astronomy
by Juan Madrid (CASS)
Bruce Slee is one of the pioneers of radio astronomy. After recording solar emission during World War II, he joined what was then the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research's Division of Radiophysics in Sydney, Australia, and went on to make important contributions to Solar System, Galactic and extra-galactic astronomy (see Radio astronomy at Dover Heights, incl. his work on the `hole-in-the-ground' antenna). Although long retired, Bruce continues to carry out research, with emphasis on active stars and clusters of galaxies. - A workshop to celebrate Bruce Slee's 70-year contribution to internatioal radio astronomy was held on 16/17 Aug 2016. - See also Wayne Orchiston's Tribute to Bruce Slee.
