LOFAR2.0 Dwingeloo Test Station opening event

Submitter: Arno Schoenmakers
Description: On May 10th, the LOFAR2.0 Dwingeloo Test Station was opened with a glorious event!

For those who could not join: The LOFAR2.0 team had prepared a joyous event, which included all the goodies we like so much from past project milestone celebrations: flags, speeches, coffee/tea, specially designed cakes, sunshine, a visually attractive opening demonstration with plenty of opportunity for failure, clapping and cheering, the press, local television coverage, and so much moreā€¦!

Apart from a short television contribution, TV Drenthe also provided a somewhat longer YouTube video of the importance of LOFAR2.0. It is certainly worth a view and can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=448R6nwwhBk

The LOFAR2.0 team is ready for the next phase of the project: rigorous testing of the current designs and improving these even more, towards a new life and new science with LOFAR!
