Mount Pleasant Radio Telescope Observatory

Grote Reber, an American pioneer of radio astronomy in the 1930s, made Tasmania his home in the 1950s because of its unique location at high magnetic latitude. He settled on the outskirts of Bothwell, a rural town 1 hour north-west of Hobart, and spent the next forty years working in partnership with the university and undertaking world-leading work in radio astronomy.
