CHIME Telescope (IMAGE) McGill University Caption The CHIME telescope incorporates four 100-metre long U-shaped cylinders of metal mesh that resemble snowboard half-pipes, with total area equivalent to five hockey rinks. CHIME reconstructs the image of the overhead sky by processing the radio signals recorded by over a thousand antennas. Its signal processing system is the largest of any telescope on Earth, allowing it to search huge regions of the sky simultaneously. Credit CHIME Usage Restrictions One-time use only.
