All Jack Hears Is Radio Ga Ga

Season 1 - Episode 6

Episode 6 of Season 1 sees us join Jack Line a Research Associate at the Curtin Institute of Radio Astronomy to discuss the things that go Ga Ga in the night sky. Jack works in a group trying to detect the presence of the very first stars early in the life of the Universe using radio waves. His main gig these days is trying to simulate what a telescope called the Murchison Widefield Array sees, and comparing it to real data, to help us understand what we're seeing. Join us as we have our finest hour and go Radio Gaga with Jack Line.
