This timelapse celebrates the 25th anniversary of CSIRO’s Australia Telescope Compact Array (ATCA). The ATCA is a set of six dishes that work together as one much larger radio telescope, and it was officially opened in September 1988. Around 500 astronomers use the telescope each year to study cosmic objects including black holes, forming and exploding stars, and galaxies at the edge of the observable Universe. Over the years, regular technical upgrades to the telescope’s equipment has ensured it maintains its place at the forefront of radio astronomy worldwide.
