– It’s great to have got started at last!
It’s not just a flat sandy field any more: Onsala’s LOFAR station is finally taking shape. The quote is from project manager Leif Helldner. I talked to him on Wednesday afternoon when I biked out to the site to see how things were going. There are 13 people working now, marking where the antennas will go, assigning cables to antenna numbers – and making a start on digging.
– Things have gone much faster than expected, says Leif.
