Paul Brook (Oxford University, UK) and colleagues analyzed fluctuations in PSR J0738-4042's pulse pattern using observations taken with the Hartebeesthoek Radio Astronomy Observatory in South Africa and the Parkes radio telescope in Australia from 1988 to 2012.
Washington, March 28 ( ANI ): While the first results from the European Space Agency's Planck satellite has been released, astronomers at the Hartebeesthoek Radio Astronomy Observatory (HartRAO) near Johannesburg are working on a new radio telescope that will also shed new light on the very earliest moments of universe.
In 1961 it was moved to Hartebeesthoek, west of Pretoria and renamed the Deep Space Implementation Facility.
Norbert Bartel of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics told the meeting that if optical astronomers though they had a hard time getting telescope time in a hurry, they should have been in on the 58 hours of telephoning it took to arrange simultaneous observations by the two radiotelescopes in the Southern Hemisphere capable of this work, which are located at Hartebeesthoek, South Africa, and Tidbinbilla, near Canberra, Australia.
