Twin radio telescope inaugurated at 79 degrees northern latitude
Five HG members took part in the 10th General Meeting of the International VLBI Service for Geodesy and Astrometry (IVS) in Longyearbyen, Spitsbergen. On that occasion, the new twin radio telescope in NyAlesund was inaugurated after a 5 hours boat trip. Some of us suffered from seasickness, so it was well deserved. Due to the unique location, these observations are very valuable for geodesy.
