LOFAR celebrates 10 year birthday

On 12 June 2020, the Low-Frequency Array (LOFAR) celebrates its tenth anniversary. The radio telescope is the world’s largest low-frequency astrophysics measurement instrument. Throughout its ten years of operation, LOFAR has made some amazing discoveries. It has been a key part of groundbreaking research, both in astronomy, astroparticle physics and engineering. Here we feature some – but definitely not all – of these past highlights, with surely more to come in the future.

The IIHE joined LOFAR in 2015 when Prof. Stijn Buitink started at the VUB.

Happy Birthday, LOFAR!
