The Very Small Array

After our visit to the Smithsonian, Carolyn and I knocked 500 km off the 1,000 km of our trip home to Toronto, arriving north of Williamsport, Pennsylvania, at 8:30 p.m. at the country home of Paul Shuch and Muriel Hykes. Paul is Executive Director Emeritus of The SETI League.

Paul is mentioned in Rollback, and is a huge SF fan. He and Muriel very nicely put us up for the night, and then we hit the road for the final leg of the trip back to Canada. But last night, Paul sang several of his filk songs to us, and this morning he showed off the Very Small Array, his collection of eight 1.8-metre radio telescopes in his backyard.
