|On the 18th of September 1995, the University acquired the Ceduna 1 Satellite Earth Station in South Australia. The site, with its 30 metre diameter antenna and several large buildings on 64 ha of land, were transferred to the University by Telstra Corporation Limited following the relocation of Ceduna's telecommunications functions to Perth. The aquisition of the landmark instrument has further boosted Tasmanias high status in Australian radio astronomy by providing the astrophysics group with control of 40% of the Australian VLBI Array. This insures that UTAS will be in a position to play a major role in this area of Australian science for many years to come.
