First Detection of VLBI Signals across 8500 km Baseline between TNRT and Effelsberg Radio Telescopes

The National Astronomical Research Institute of Thailand (NARIT), in collaboration with the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy (MPIfR), has achieved the historic first detection of astronomical radio signals using Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) with the 40-m Thai National Radio Telescope (TNRT). The experiment, performed together with the Effelsberg 100-m radio telescope in Germany, [...]

New calibration technique circumvents Earth’s ionosphere

An international team of researchers has developed a new calibration technique to circumvent disturbances of Earth’s ionosphere. Using this technique with the LOFAR telescope, the researchers have already made some new discoveries about the distribution of radio emissions. The new calibration technique allowed the researchers to produce the first sharp radio maps of the universe [...]
