Radio telescope has mapped star formation galaxies

The South African Radio Astronomy Observatory’s MeerKAT telescope recently mapped radio emissions in an area of sky about the size of five full moons and revealed tens of thousands of star-forming galaxies that date to this period in our universe’s history. MeerKAT is a precursor to the Square Kilometre Array,...

Cambridge researchers and SKA, the biggest radio telescope in the world

Cambridge Researchers have completed designing the Square Kilometer Array(SKA)’s “brain”, the biggest radio telescope in the world. This radio telescope will allow astronomers to supervise the sky in extraordinary details and in a quicker way. In 5 years the researchers realized 1 of 2 supercomputers that will run the massive...

The ASTRI radio telescope starts its activity!

Galbiati Group has completely realized the mechanical construction of the ASTRI radio telescope (Mirror Astrophysics and Italian Replicating Technology) ASTRI SST-2M at the Catania Astronomical Observatory. ASTRI is the new prototype of a new type of telescope that will built the project called Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) and will be...

A new radio telescope for Magdalena Ridge Obsetvatory

In collaboration with EIE GROUP, Galbiati Group has recently manufactured a UTE (Unit Telescope Enclosure) radio telescope with final destination New Mexico. UTE is inside a big project, called MRO -Magdalena Ridge Observatory-, an astronomical and research observatory located in the province of Socorro, New Mexico, in the Magdalena mountains....

A new radio telescope for South Africa

South Africa has given the go-ahead for a radio telescope that will detect fast radio bursts as well as track neutral hydrogen gas on cosmic scales. Costing R70 million ($5m), the Hydrogen Intensity and Real Time Analysis eXperiment (HIRAX) will consist of 1024 dishes, each 6 m in diameter. It will be located...

There is renewal in the air for Parkes radio telescope

The Parkes radio telescope in New South Wales, Australia, has been enhanced with a special receiver. This $ 2.5 million receiver can capture and identify radio frequencies between 700MHz and 4GHz, much better than its predecessor. Thanks to the new device, the radio telescope will be able, with even greater precision, to look for...

Rubber applications in the aerospace industry

The products of the rubber industry find applications in many industrial sectors, such as in the aerospace industry, thanks to the high performance of the rubber. Rubber products have the ability to resist to extreme temperatures and to aerospace fluids such as engine lubrication oils, hydraulic fluids, jet fuels, oxidizers and rocket...
