Protei for astronomy

I have been mentioning in recent times that : 
  • Our planet surface is 70% water
  • Some astronomical studies do not require sensitive directional sensors. 
  • Some of these sensors are not that costly but provide extremely valuable data. 
In other words, if we can have points of measurements in the sea on demand, having an array of Protei at sea, is a huge asset. 

Even Underwater large arrays are in the works !

Funnily enough Astoparticle physics being a new field, they are organised in the way that is very similar to us : decentralised, an on-line community.  


In fact "emulating" a large telescope with many smaller ones is a common practice in space observation. 

I will keep doing research, but having the capability of locating receivers at will seem to be a very interesting platform for space study. 
If you are interested in such dispositive, this will also be of great interest : gravitational lensing
