GBT Surveys

Optimizing Science from the Green Bank Telescope

To explore the ways that the GBO might assist survey science there will be a workshop “Optimizing Science from Green Bank Telescope Surveys” at the Green Bank Observatory on November 13-14, 2018.

Decadal Survey

ASTRO 2020

Preparing for the Decadal survey

We are preparing a long-term plan for the scientific program of the Green Bank Observatory and the GBT for the period 2020 – 2030. This review of current and future instruments will provide input to the 2020 Decadal survey.

Workshop

Green Bank Observatory Single Dish Training School

May 19-23, 2018

The Green Bank Telescope (GBT) Single Dish Training School will provide students, post-docs, and experts in other fields of astronomy with both knowledge and practical experience of the techniques and applications of single-dish radio astronomy using the GBT as the primary example.

THE CASE FOR A PUBLICLY AVAILABLE, WELL-­INSTRUMENTED GBT OPERATING AT 20-­115 GHZ

A well-­instrumented Green Bank Telescope (GBT) operating at high frequency represents a unique scientific resource for the US community. As a filled-­aperture, 100m-­diameter telescope, the GBT is ideally suited to fast mapping of extended, low surface brightness emission with excellent instantaneous frequency coverage.

The Universe is whispering to us and the gigantic Green Bank Telescope (GBT) can decipher these cosmic murmurs like no other. From comets to cosmology, the sheer range of science done with this versatile instrument is astounding.

Astronomers currently use the Green Bank Telescope to map the lunar regolith, time millisecond pulsars, weigh black holes and probe dark energy. Now the race is on to study the new window to the Universe: ripples in space time. This is an exciting time for science!
