Students interested in obtaining a PhD in astronomy can do so under the supervision of ASTRON staff members. The students will be officially located at one of the Dutch Universities (Amsterdam, Groningen, Leiden, Nijmegen) but will visit ASTRON regularly. You can contact our astronomy research staff to find out if there are any current openings.

Congratulations to our former colleague and LOFAR scientist Heino Falcke with his prize! 🥳

How does a radio wave become a picture? Part II: Compact receivers. A radio wave that has travelled light years is picked up by a receiver on a telescope through an antenna. The (very weak) signal is then amplified and digitized. Read part 2 here: http://bit.ly/3aznntV

How does a radio wave become a picture? Planets, stars and nebula’s all emit radio waves, which are a form of invisible light waves. Read here the first part on what happens to those radio waves when they are received by a radio telescope! 📡🌠http://bit.ly/2YFDuQM
