The podcast was adapted for use in the 365 Days of Astronomy by Steve Nerlich
Description: This podcast is the first of two parts of an interview with Dr Brian Boyle – the Project Director of the Australian and New Zealand bid for the multinational Square Kilometre Array radio astronomy project – the world’s biggest single science project.
The interview was recorded on the 29th of May, the day after Dr Boyle’s return to Australia following the decision to share the Square Kilometre Array between the competing sites in Australia and New Zealand and South Africa.
The interview was recorded in a busy Canberra cafe, so apologies for the background noise.
Bio:Alan Kerlin is an amateur astronomer and blogger, living in Canberra. When Neil Armstrong stepped onto the Moon in 1969, Alan Kerlin and the rest of his school in Canberra watched it on a single small black and white TV, inspiring an interest in science and space travel.
More recently, exposure to the online science community through social media has reignited Alan’s interest in science in general, and particularly in astronomy.
