"There are some really exciting images coming out of those instruments right now,” says SKA engineer Roshene McCool, referring to developments at ASKAP and MeerKAT. McCool says that as well as being important scientific instruments in their own right, the SKA precursor projects will also return a lot of practical information about building telescope arrays in these environments. “The design and the construction of those telescopes has built both infrastructure and also human capital in those areas so that we have skilled people who understand what is actually quite a specialized area" she says
"As well as advancing our knowledge and understanding in a range of disciplines, they have demonstrated exceptional leadership, communicated their science"
"Fermi continues to be an amazing engine for pulsar discoveries."
...that the significance of new findings becomes a function of the influence and money available from an institution’s media office," Dr Soria says. "I am not against using web review instead of peer review, but I dislike the idea of media conferences hyping findings before any review has taken place." Despite the controversy, BICEP holds the record for the deepest image of the ancient cosmic microwave background, Dr Duffy points out
