LOFAR, the world's biggest telescope

HansonMB (1988686) writes "Back in September, Motherboard ventured into the English countryside to listen to the universe. There lives a brand new piece of Europe’s already-massive Low Frequency Radio Array radio telescope: a clever EU-wide installation that uses low-tech antennas and supercomputer-power data processing to transform into a giant mega-telescope, absorbing cosmic radio waves from the full sky."

Not Exactly Low Frequency (1)

Muad'Dave (255648) | more than 3 years ago | (#35282756)

Although the name of the telescope implies that it's a low frequency instrument, it's actually meant to receive signals between 10-250 MHz, which makes it a High- to Very High-Frequency telescope according to standard frequency prefixes.

I was expecting true LF [wikipedia.org] - 30-300kHz.
