ASKAP 2016 Science Meeting
The ASKAP 2016 conference photo was taken in front of Sydney Uni's famous MADSEN BUILDING, named after Professor JPV Madsen. A CSIROpedia article about Ruby Payne-Scott states: "In March 1944, she and Joseph Pawsey carried out an initial radio astronomy experiment from the Madsen Building in the grounds of Sydney University. This was followed in 1945 by her carrying out some of the key early solar radio astronomy observations at Dover Heights (Sydney). In the years 1945 to 1947, she discovered three of the five categories of solar bursts originating in the solar corona and made major contributions to the techniques of radio astronomy.".
