School of Cosmic Explosions visits UTMOST

As part of the ANITA school on cosmic explosions, we were delighted to host about 25 students, postdocs and staff on 5th Feb 2020 as part of the the 14th annual ANITA meeting (held at ADFA in Canberra Australia).

Swinburne researcher Dr. Chris Flynn demonstrated the telescope making live of observations of pulsars and spoke on our discoveries of fast radio bursts.

Tim Bateman spoke on the real world radio engineering and high speed data processing requirements of an active research site, and our extensive upgrade UTMOST-2D, which is bringing an order of magnitude improvement in performance.

ANITA is the Australian National Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics, and is part of the Astronomical Society of Australia.
