Ireland's Bid for a New Radio Observatory

Today we are featuring the new promotional video produced by the I-LOFAR consortium. I-LOFAR is the Irish LOFAR telescope bid, which the KAIRA team have been assisting. If they can raise the remaining funding (of which they already have a substantial start), they will be able to implement LOFAR station in central Ireland. This will be crucial, not just for their own national astronomy programme, but also for extending the longest baselines of the LOFAR network, adding to it sensitivity, and fostering vitally needed collaborative programmes between the existing European Community and Irish universities and industry.

Good luck, Ireland! And have a nice weekend all!
