 OOTY RADIO TELESCOPE

Radio   telescope   has   been   installed   at   Muthorai   which   could   be   reached  via.  Fernhill on   the   Udhagamandalam - Avalanche   road.   This   being   the   largest   telescope   in  Asia  was constructed    between    1966    and    1968.    It  was  generated  with  indigenous   capabilities   in   antenna design   and   fabrication   as   an   offshoot.   The  Radio Astronomy Centre (TIFR) is using the telescope for astronomical investigations.

The Ooty Radio Telescope came into operation in 1970 and has been in almost continuous use since then. Over the 25 years of its existence, it has produced many important astronomical results on radio galaxies, quasars, supernovae, pulsars, the interstellar and interplanetary media etc. One of the most successful observational programmes carried out for many years at Ooty was to determine the angular structures of hundreds of distant radio galaxies and quasars by the technique of lunar occultations. The application of this unique database to observational cosmology provided independent evidence against the Steady-State theory of Universe and supported the Big-Bang model of the Universe. The telescope is currently being used mainly for the study of pulsars, radio recombination lines and interplanetary scintillations.
