ASKAP Radio Telescope

ASKAP Radio Telescope (Australia Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder) is made up of 36 identical antennas, each 12 metres in diameter, working together as a single instrument.   Watch the beautiful video…

Located at the Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory (MRO) in the Mid West region of Western Australia.

ASKAP will be one of the world’s premier radio telescopes and will help to answer fundamental questions about our Universe.

“The ASKAP is the next generation radio-telescope with 36 antennae that work together as one with a total collecting area of approximately 4,000 square metres. When completed the The ASKAP telescope will be able to detect hundreds of times more galaxies than current radio telescopes, helping us to understand how galaxies have formed and evolved.

I hope you enjoy watching this short film. Many thanks to Maxim Voronkov (CSIRO) for helping me out on site and for driving the antennas for the film and to CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science for organising my
unforgettable visit.

Thanks to Dynamic Perception ( for making a great programmable and portable Stage Zero dolly.”
