OT: Dedian used at Radio Observatory

Hello Everyone,

Posted on my local LUG - thought you may be interested?

"I was at the Hartbeeshoek Radio Observatory on Friday evening. They
have a 200 ton aluminium dish searching for pulsars etc. dumping in
excess of 1 TB of data per day ! Running Debian :) controlling
everything on the dish, from moving the whole structure with electric
motors, to gathering and analysing the data.
I felt so proud..."

Have fun.
