CSIRO Chief Executive Dr Larry Marshall recently had the opportunity
to visit the Murchison Radio Observatory for the first time.
While in Western Australia, Larry first
had a tour through the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre in Kensington,
which is where ASKAP and MWA data ends up, before flying out to Murchison
to check in on where the data originates! In addition to seeing
ASKAP (the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder),
Larry visited the MWA (Murchison Widefield Array),
managed and operated by Curtin University, and stopped by
the Aperture Array Verification System (AAVS 1.0)
for the Square Kilometer Array (SKA) -- as pictured above.
