The virtual Parkes telescope!
As part of the ongoing development of the long running PULSE@Parkes education programme, a new 3-D virtualisation of the iconic CSIRO Parkes 64m Radio Telescope has been developed, including the Augmented Reality extension seen here. The PULSE@Parkes programme was successfully run through CSIRO's ON Prime Entrepreneurship scheme in 2017 to develop it into a broader, higher education programme. The 3-D visualisation has come courtesy of CSIRO's IM&T Scientific Computing with specific acknowledgement to Kristina Johnson and Michael Kuiper. The image above shows, at left, the specially printed piece of paper sitting on a desktop and, at right, what appears when a phone with the app installed is aimed at that piece of paper!
