The Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory Radio Quiet Zone
In a recent article for The Conversation, Kate Chow describes the efforts made to keep the Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory a Radio Quiet Zone. The telescopes on the MRO, the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP), the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA), and Experiment to Detect the Global EoR (Epoch of Reionization) Signature (EDGES) -- soon to be joined by the Square Kilometre Array low frequency telescope -- rely on the fact that radio waves from human activities in the area are kept to a minimum so that they are able to detect faint whispers from across the Universe.
