Official Opening of the EVN Correlator


22 October 1998 - This picture shows the Queen's Commissioner in the Province of Drenthe, Relus ter Beek, assisted by Richard Schilizzi, Director of JIVE, prepared to load a tape on one of the 16 Data Playback Units (DPU). The thin tape selected for the occasion had been recorded at Westerbork in May 1998; the other 15 tapes were recorded at telescopes all over the world.

The opening of the Data Processor closes the construction phase. The next phase is the commissioning.
