MRO Virtual Tour
The Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory is located on Wajarri Yamaji land about 700km north-east from Perth, in a legislated Radio Quiet Zone. It is now possible to take a virtual tour of the site, with fully interactive 360-degree panoramas. Among the points of interest are the 36 radio-telescope dishes that make up ASKAP, the Murchison Widefield Array, the solar farm and lithium-ion battery, and the MRO Control Building. Data from Murchison is transmitted to the Pawsey Supercomputing Facility in Perth – also part of the virtual tour.
