World Map of VLBI Telescopes

Submitter: Zsolt Paragi
Description: The world map next to the JIVE correlator room, where most of the data processing happens for the European VLBI Network (EVN), is being renewed. The old world map has lost its original lustre, and the number of radio telescopes relevant to our work has increased.

A new, shiny map will soon be installed. Just like its predecessor, it will highlight (by means of bright LEDs) the radio telescopes that are supplying our users with a steady stream of high-quality data, from all over the world.

The image shows Martin Leeuwinga installing the LEDs one by one. Here he is busy with one of the EVN's latest members, the Sardinia Radio Telescope.
