Amazing Timelapse Of Telescopes Examining The Night Sky

The Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (AKSAP) is a grid of 36 12-meter antennas that are designed to work together as a single device, so as to capture information about large chunks of the sky at once. The grid went live this week. Its size and power will allow it to capture data from a nearby galaxy much faster and in less time than current telescopes. Current technology would take 150 images and 10,000 hours of processing to get a clear picture of a nearby galaxy, AKSAP can do it in two images and in just five minutes.
