The Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) is a low-frequency radio telescope in Western Australia. It consists of 4,096 spider-like antennas arranged in 256 regular grids called ‘tiles’, spread over several kilometres relatively nearby to Mt Magnet in the Murchison Radio-Astronomy Observatory. Come see what this state-of-the-art radio telescope looks like and learn from a MWA engineer how it works.
