Thanks mate.Kinda surprised they aired something so intellectual Lovely though to get a little insight into why you built it.
It's reassuring to know that people out there other than me value the scientific future of our younger generations
Dunno if you heard but the speaker of the house recently offered a speaking challenge to uni students with the reward being a trip to parliament...
Entered, figured if I win(unlikely) I'll ditch parliament and visit Mt Stromlo instead... Far more educational and much less depressing.
Yo can make your own radio antenna. I mad a few some years ago. Look up DIY radio astronomy, dipole antenna, Jupiter antenna, etc.I would love to be able to do something like this. The limiting factor for me is $$$. I don't even have enough to get replacement parts made for my 6in telescope, much less make an observatory. Local college near where I live runs an observatory, but I've never managed to make it to one of their events.
I'd love to make a small radio observatory at my house, but finding a good dish is hard.
