As YSF-2016 is not just about science and young scientists' career development, but is also made for communication and fun of the forum participants, many exciting social events will be held during YSF-2016.
A little about UTR-2:
It is a unique and world largest in terms of effective area low-frequency radio telescope which operates in the lowest frequency range accessible to observe the cosmic radio sources from the Earth surface. UTR-2 is built in the site of S.Y. Braude Radio Astronomical Observatory which is located in 80 km from Kharkiv in a picturesque place near village Volokhiv Yar in Chuguiiv district of Kharkiv region. The largest part of UTR-2 is its antenna system, an antenna array of 2040 fat dipoles arranged into two arms. The longest arm stretches from North to South and has about 2 km length. The radio telescope is equipped with broadband low-nose optimal amplification system and modern baseband digital receivers. All the equipment was developed in the Institute of Radio Astronomy of NAS of Ukraine. UTR-2 takes part in a great variety of radio astronomical observations and international projects. It helps to study cosmic radio sources starting from the nearest Earth ionosphere and up to the most distant objects in our Universe.
At the site of observatory a new Giant Ukrainian Radio Telescope (GURT) is being built and tested. For now it is not really giant, because only 11 subarrays of the telescope has been built. Radio astronomers hope to build at least 100 subarrays to complete the telescope and be able to compete with the upcoming low-frequency radio telescopes in the world. But even now single GURT sections allow performing investigations and study various astrophysical problems. It will operate both as a single radio telescope and as an extension of UTR-2 to essentially increase its possibilities.
The YSF-2016 has ended. It was a pleasure to meet you all!
