ATCA Opening 30th Anniversary
Yesterday, September 2nd, marked the 30th anniversary of the official opening of the Australia Telescope Compact Array at Narrabri. The Array was opened by the Prime Minister, The Hon. R.J.L. Hawke, MP, on Friday 2nd September 1988. The annual meeting of the Astronomical Society of Australia had been held in Narrabri that week, and so an audience of around 800 locals and astronomers were present for the big day. More details are given at this ATCA webpage describing the opening. (Image credit: CSIRO)
