Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist Paul G. Allen joins UC Berkeley and the SETI Institute to launch the next phase of astronomical research using the Allen Telescope Array, an innovative telescope for radio astronomy

Hat Creek, Calif. ? Oct. 11, 2007 ? Today, the University of California, Berkeley and the SETI Institute announced that the first 42 radio dishes of the Allen Telescope Array (ATA) are activated and collecting scientific data from the far reaches of the universe. This is the first phase of a planned 350 radio dishes that will advance the capabilities of radio astronomy research. Paul G. Allen, Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist whose foundation donated seed money that started the project in 2001, joined representatives of UC Berkeley and the SETI Institute to launch the array.

?This is a great day for the science of radio astronomy and the study of the cosmos,? said Leo Blitz, UC Berkeley professor of astronomy and director of the university?s Radio Astronomy Laboratory, which is building the ATA with the SETI Institute. ?Thanks to a unique intersection between the best in science, advanced, innovative technology and bold philanthropy, many secrets of the universe are a little closer to being revealed.?

I took a look at the site on Google Earth. Not very impressive. They need to dress up the dirt a little bit. Perhaps paint geometric pattern lines between the dishes.
(just search for Allen Telescope Array).
