Description:

The Australia Telescope National Facility manages four large, state of the art radio telescopes in Southeast Australia. ATNF’s web site is a complex configuration of resources for researchers, technicians, educators, and cosmology buffs. Amateur enthusiasts will want to navigate to the Outreach section, with its trove of photographs and educational materials. In particular, check out the Cosmic engine for senior students, an overview of past and current theories of the universe. Here you’ll find modules such as Early Models of the Universe and The Lives of Stars. Also in Outreach, What is Radio Astronomy? provides a welcome overview of the technical basics of these impressive examples of modern technology.
