@"Just think about how your engineering career would go if nobody could ever find out as to if your analysis and conclusions were correct or not." For some engineers I know I'm sure that would be an advantage :-)

That is indeed a very large array of antennas. Unfortunately the primary use is a simple waste of time, effort, and resources, since they are watching for radiation from stars and planets in the very far away distance. They may decide upon some conclusions but the stuff is so far away that there is no way to check the conclusions or the data. Just think about how your engineering career would go if nobody could ever find out as to if your analysis and conclusions were correct or not.

Ask me in 10, 20, and 30 years ... and I'll tell you :-)

I did a Time Capsule back in the 90s with my school class. No idea what's happened to it now. One thing though, will there be emails in 10, 20, 30 years time??

How about: Enormously Arrayed Radar (EAR) With Advanced X-linking ?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
