The monotonous flatness of the Western Australian outback is interrupted by the tall antennae of the Australian SKA Pathfinder Radio Telescope. The night sky is majestically dark with no man-made lights for as far as eye would see. The dishes are slowly turning following the path of stars. Sounds like stargazer's haven... Alex Cherney filmed the CSIRO ASKAP radio telescope under the night time sky.
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.
