Physics Undergraduate Research in the Australian Outback

In the summer of 2016, four UWM physics undergraduates built and installed 576 antennas for the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) in the Australian Outback. The array antennas gather data from the distant reaches of the universe in a search for astronomical pulsars (rapidly spinning neutron stars). The group of physics majors were enlisted for this project by UWM physicist Dr. David Kaplan. More information can be found at Physics students head to Australia for the sake of science
