The Conversation produces a podcast entitled "Trust me, I'm an expert"
In last week's episode, Antonio Tarquinio speaks to John Sarkissian about the research
underway at one of Australia’s most famous astronomical research facilities including:
the role Parkes is playing right now in the search for extra-terrestrial intelligence,
how the telescope detects extremely weak signals coming from the most distant parts of the Universe,
why even a light breeze can imperil the dish unless it’s in the right position, and
how the explosion of phones, wi-fi and radio frequency interference is affecting research
in the once-deserted Parkes location.
