Goonhilly Earth Station (GES) has signed an agreement for a consortium of Universities to work with GES to use the large telescopes for radio astronomy purposes.

Chair of the consortium of Universities, Professor Melvin Hoare of the University of Leeds, said "This is a fantastic opportunity which enables a number of Universities to utilise the incredible assets at Goonhilly that GES Ltd have saved. We are very excited at the prospect of using the Goonhilly telescopes to conduct front-line research, develop and test new technology and provide first class hands-on training opportunities for our students. We also look forward to growing the membership of CUGA to include further Universities from both the UK and abroad."

Operations Director for GES, Piran Trezise said: "This is an important aspect of the development of the Space Science Park at Goonhilly, whereby leading research can be undertaken and the public will be able to experience first-hand the exciting world of astronomy."

GES has taken a three-year lease of the Goonhilly antennas to support deep space research.
