the 36 antennas for the ASKAP project www.askap.org from Beijing to the Murchison
Radio- Astonomy Obsevatory (MRO) in Western Australia














 


 The components for each antenna occupied 4x40ft open top containers.


















 
The components were carefully loaded and secured by overhead cranes in China.
Equipment of this sensitive nature required specialised packing and securing to
ensure no damage occured during transit

















After the goods cleared Customs and Quarantine in Fremantle they were transported by
road train to MRO some 800 kms away










 CSIRO scientist monitored the assembly of the antennas at site.



















 The finished product ready to explore the outer regions of the universe.
