If you arrive at the Airport of Cagliari from NE, probably you will see a strange 64-meter diameter white instrument
in the middle of (almost) nothing.
What it is that? Keep calm: aliens are not arrived yet. Your holidays are probably save.
This is the Sardinia Radio Telescope,
a major radio astronomical facility almost ready for outstanding scientific observations.
Its science goals spread from Radio Astronomy, Geodynamical studies and Space science.
You do not trust me?
Here the first scientific result from observations with this extraordinary facility, published on
Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society:
They observed a supermassive black hole
moving at high velocity to a nearby galaxy cluster 3C129.
Here also a brief description of the obtained results from Matteo Murgia (in italian).
Waiting for other exciting news from the SRT team!
