Pyramid Power, an environmentally friendly source of renewable energy. With renewable energy, you can avoid the cost of connecting to the electricity grid and there's no need for extensive surveys, tree clearing or construction works, nor any transformers easements.
Radio telescopes operate by detecting the radio waves that all matter emits.
Conventional parabolic telescopes work in teams and the information from each is then patched together to give astronomers a complete picture of what is out there.
Data collected by the antennas is processed by a supercomputer
However, to reach the far end of the universe would require a telescope 100 times the size of conventional dishes.
Instead, scientists working on the Lofar project have resorted to pyramid power, creating 20 to 25,000 simple pyramidal radio antennae, which are being put in place 350 kilometres across the north of the Netherlands.
In the end they will go to make up the world's largest radio telescope.
