PULSE@Parkes

Through the PULSE@Parkes program, high school students take control of the Parkes radio telescope to observe pulsars under the guidance of professional astronomers. Students may discover a new pulsar, identify unusual ones or detect sudden glitches in their rotation. The data collected is added to a growing database of results and is used by astronomers for ongoing research.

A typical PULSE@Parkes session lasts two hours and includes a brief introductory talk and movie, the actual observing session and initial data analysis.
