A new radio telescope for South Africa

South Africa has given the go-ahead for a radio telescope...

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 in the Karoo region of South Africa and will map about a third of the sky during four years of operation.

One of the most important aims of this new radio telescope will be to pinpoint the location of fast radio bursts, that are so brief that most telescope can’t localize them.

HIRAX, the new radio telescope, and its large field of view will allow astronomers to observe large portions of the sky daily so, in principle, when the flashes happen the instrument will be more likely to see them.

HIRAX will require a petascale computer to process up to 6.5 terabits of data per second as well as infrastructure to compress this data by a factor of 50–100.

Galbiati Group, leader in the construction of large sized precision machines and plants, works successfully in the astronomy sector manufacturing mechanical components for satellite dishes and radio telescopes. Discover more about the company!

According to a study by the association WindEurope, in the whole 2018 was expected 3.3 GW of new offshore wind and 10.2 GW of onshore wind. This meant 13.5 GW of new wind capacity in total for the year.

Countries like Germany, France, UK continue to drive the market growth: them represent the 75% of H1 2018 additions.

Under the EU’s new Renewables Directive, member states must give five years’ visibility on future auction timetables and volumes.

In offshore wind, meanwhile, the association said Europe was too dependent on the UK, which is striding ahead in current installations and in committing to future volumes.

This type of industry includes the production of petrochemicals, agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, polymers, paints, and oleo chemicals.

It is involved in the processing of raw materials obtained by mining, agriculture among other supply sources, into materials, substances, chemical compounds that are finished products or are used in other industries.

There are a lot of varieties of rubber products manufactured for a full range of Chemical Metering and Dispensing Equipment Applications. Besides the rubber products, rubber is itself used in various chemical processes. In practically all chemical plants, there are some process or reaction in which a corrosive reagent is used or produced.

Hard rubber of suitable compound is chemically inert to a high degree and is used in connection with a great many corrosive materials. Essentially, hard rubber is rubber compounded with a relatively high percentage of sulfur.

Galbiati Group has successfully realized four rubber mixer drives for tire manufacturing (roll mixing millsfor an important internationally recognized group.

Searching for new sources of energy in Ghana: nuclear energy is also evaluated

energy

According to the latest statements it appears that nuclear energy will be one of the main sources of power production by 2029.

Ghana has already made several attempts to diversify its energy mix with the introduction of solar sources. Now,  the Ministry of Energy is also thinking about nuclear energy. The government has established a Nuclear Regulatory Authority to guide the implementation of Ghana’s Nuclear Power Programme.

Before developing an infrastructure for nuclear power, each country must demonstrate ownership of infrastructural requirements. Lately, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) declares that the country already has all 19 required requirements. The first of three phases required by IAEA has passed!

There is renewal in the air for Parkes radio telescope

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 gravitational waves emitted by black holes, to map the magnetic fields of the Milky Way, and to study neutron stars. Australia’s National Science Agency has installed the new receiver to renew the radio telescope’s abilities and remain competitive in astronomical discovery. The Parkes radio telescope is one of three that make up the Australia Telescope National Facility.
