Here you find a selection of movies to tell you more about us.

Who we are and what we do

 

 

When did the lights go on in the Universe?

 

 

LOFAR, the Low Frequency Array

What is beam forming and how does it work?

 

 

Einstein’s theory still passes the test: weak and strong gravity objects fall the same way

 

 

How astronomers can study dark matter in the Universe by using galaxies as a lens

 

 

The history of the Universe in the blink of an eye

The history of our Universe is written in the skies. Radio astronomers can detect ancient signals from the dawn of time as well as light from our nearest neighbours. Separating out these layers of time and space allows them to reconstruct the evolution of the Universe. This film reveals how thirteen billion years of history can be captured in a single moment.

Another impressive result for LOFAR! An international team of astronomers from @UniLeiden & @mediainaf discovered a galaxy that seems to be wagging it's tail, a tail of 2,5 million light years long! https://bit.ly/2QBTL9W 💫
