Trailblazer #1

Last night's first trailblazer event went off with a big bang!

Prof Brian Boyle gave us a sparkling tour from the view of "the year 2032" back over the 100 years of radio astronomy, and a tour it was! Taking in quasars, pulsars and more, he whisked us through the discovery and development of the technology and looked forward (ahem I mean back) to creation and findings of the Square Kilometre Array, a new global initiative in radio astronomy. And it all nicely tied in with the 50th anniversary of the Lovell Telescope...

I think the whole thing's going to be a Jod-cast, so that's a great chance to catch up on what he said if you weren't there...
