The newly connected telescope in Warkworth, New Zealand is connected to an Australian data processing facility via a 1 Gbps network. Each telescope reportedly produces up to 10Tb of data per 10 hours of observation. IBM expects the SKA to produce an exabyte of data per day.
Real Programmers don't write in FORTRAN. FORTRAN is for pipe stress freaks and
crystallography weenies. FORTRAN is for wimp engineers who wear white socks.
