To put this in perspective, a observing run employing six dishes typically generates 30 to 80 megabytes (30 to 80 million bytes or 240 to 1,600 million bits) of data. Ten dishes would raise this output to 90 to 240 megabytes (million bytes) or 720 to 1,920 megabits (million bits). How can scientists turn the billions of bits into useful images?
Enter the number crunchers!
