Countdown to ASKAP Survey Science
The countdown to ASKAP-36 full survey science is a campaign designed to share the telescope's final commissioning milestones with the astro-community and our partners. The process of bringing to life this complex science instrument, with its innovative engineering design, super-computing technology and wide-field survey capability doesn't come with a play-book and doesn't provide a single moment of victory, but rather a series of steps towards full capability. CSIRO's ASKAP Commissioning Team is working through these final nine milestones and each one presents a higher level of complexity than the last. The fourth stage, an image of a complex field, was released last week, and will feature as tomorrow's ADAP.
