Issue 13: Autumn 2022

Welcome to the new look MRO News

Welcome to the first edition of  MRO News for 2022, with a brand-new look, and a brand-new website. You’ll see that MRO News articles now all link off to the new MRO website, and we also have two new sections in this issue, welcome to the AusSRC and Pawsey (more in my blog linked below).

While the recent rains have been welcome for some, it's a tough time for those who have experienced damaging effects. I hope you're all doing OK around the Murchison and staying safe on the roads.  

I was recently showing dignitaries from the SKA Observatory UK team around in March (see photo of the UK visitors and Australian SKAO team with their new sign in Perth below) and they had a fantastic time in the region, thanks to those who met with and hosted the visitors while they were here.

Enjoy this issue of the MRO News, let us know what you think of the new look,
