      SPEAKER Ian Morison ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- SYNOPSISIn 1964, a Ferranti Argus 100 computer became the first in the world to control the operations of a radio telescope. Since then several generations of computers have been used both for the control and data acquisition of our telescopes but also, once with one of the first small “supercomputers”, the analysis of our data. Our real-time computer network links the MERLIN telescopes across the UK and arrays of processors have taken over from digital hardware to capture the pulses from neutron stars that have helped us prove Einstein’s theories.----------------------------------------------------------------------------- For overseas delegates who wish to attend the event please note that BCS does not issue invitation letters. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- THIS EVENT IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY:Computer Conservation Societyhttp://www.computerconservationsociety.org/lectures/current/lecture.htm
