Filming at Parkes
ABC TV’s Catalyst team visited the Parkes Observatory recently to film and interview George Hobbs and Laura Driessen for a documentary investigating the science of sound. Following a tour of the Parkes 64m radio telescope, Murriyang, in the evening images were projected onto the surface of Giyalung Miil, the 12 metre diameter Parkes Testbed Facility. With temperatures dropping to a chilly 6 degrees, and watched by a flock of somewhat confused ewes and their lambs, a number of stunning astronomical images were projected onto the antenna, as illustrated above. The episode will be broadcast as part of Science Week in August this year. (Image credit: Richard Monk)

As Monday is a public holiday, the next ADAP will appear on Tuesday June 13th.
