LOFAR-the Largest Telescope in the World?
In the press for that LOFAR was described as the largest telescope in the world, but there has been a lot of critique of that claim. In the post I explain why LOFAR can claim that title, at least for the time being.
Also I love this picture of the LOFAR super-terp in the Netherlands. This shows several of the core stations of LOFAR.
