The idea for the EHT was conceived in the early 2000s by Sheperd Doeleman, who was leading a pioneering VLBI program at Haystack Observatory and now directs the EHT project as an astronomer at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
The set comprises 41 VLBI, 18 SLR, 378 GPS, and 28 DORIS stations, respectively.
From 1995 to 2000, he worked as chief engineer/manager at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, leading technical and program operations of a Japan/USA-led team (project VSOP) pioneering a new technique in Space VLBI, that resulted in successful operation of a phased-radar radio telescope approaching three earth diameters, providing the highest angular resolution of any technique of its time.
In an international context, Mike was the driving force behind South Africa's membership of the Joint Institute for VLBI in Europe (JIVE),
Going by the nickname 'ATERUI', the eight-cabinet Cray XC30 supercomputer has a peak performance of over 500 teraflops and is located at NAOJ's Mizusawa VLBI Observatory in Iwate, Japan.
He started his research career in 1985 in the Radio Research Laboratory (presently, the National Institute of Information and Communications and Technology), and worked on the VLBI (very long baseline interferometer) project at Kashima Space Research Center during 1985-1987.
Mr Hyde used an image of methanol masers orbiting a proto-star some 17 thousand light years distant to illustrate how radio astronomy has added to our understanding of the universe, whilst the technology employed by instruments such as the European VLBI Network demonstrated the ingenuity employed to obtain such images.
Traditional very long baseline interferometry (VLBI) observations are performed by telescopes based in several countries that simultaneously point at the same source.
Doeleman and the team have already published, in Nature in 2008, data from a rudimentary form of the telescope array, its instruments working together in a process called VLBI, very long baseline interferometry.
Conveniently, the World Geodetic System 1984 (WGS84) ellipsoid is associated with GNSS surveying since its definition has been developed over the years based on concerted efforts using combinations of VLBI, satellite/lunar laser and high precision GPS campaigns.
The released relay Rstar satellite will work with the other VLBI satellite to observe the moon's gravitational field using a radio interference method.
