Re: minutes Physics Theorynet meeting September 24, 2022

On a related note, I know of a QuarkNet teacher in VT who had a student 
build a relatively small radio telescope for relatively little money and 
parts mostly from Home Depot.  Although I’m not positive on the details 
but I believe it was sensitive to hydrogen emissions and could be used to 
measure the spin of the Milky Way galaxy.
