At Elfordstown Earthstation, Midleton, Co Cork, Minister for Research and Innovation, Sean Sherlock TD, announced a partnership between the National Space Centre and Cork Institute of Technology (CIT) which will see a huge 32metre satellite dish start a new life as a Deep Space Radio Telescope.

The dish was originally constructed in 1984 to take transatlantic telephone calls from Europe to the US, and was retired from use in the mid 1990ís when underground transatlantic cables were laid.
