The Arecibo 305-m radio telescope in Puerto Rico.
Bringing the world's largest radio telescope to the F&M campus.
Room: Hackman 226
The NANOStars research and education program is part of NANOGrav, an effort to detect gravitational waves using pulsar timing. NANOStars allows F&M students to use the Arecibo radio telescope and other premier observatories around the world for pulsar search and timing projects. The students operate the telescope remotely from F&M and are primarily involved in searching the Galaxy for radio pulsars and timing those pulsars. NANOStars students also search the data collected using a pulsar candidate viewer to identify new radio pulsars. These pulsars are then confirmed and further studied.
The NANOStars students at F&M are:
