Work begins on B.C. time machine radio telescope


Construction has begun on a new radio telescope in British Columbia's south Okanagan that will act like a type of time machine and help astrophysicists travel back to better understand the composition of our expanding universe… It's the first research telescope built in Canada in more than three decades and includes scientists from the observatory, the University of British Columbia, McGill University and the University of Toronto… The Canada Foundation for Innovation has contributed $4.6 million towards the project, and while many of the scientists have participated in other international products, they are proud of the work that's underway.
