(1/n) For this webinar, we dived into a gold mine of archived material and had a tough time choosing what to share. To give you a peek into what lies in store, here are some snippets from the Silver Jubilee Report. A ginormous thumbs up to #TIFRArchives for sharing this with us! https://twitter.com/TIFRH_buzz/status/1265875145199157249
(2/n) "A view of the 530 nm long Ooty radio telescope which is located at an altitude of 2,200 metres in the Nilgiri Hills. Each of the 24 frames is 30 m wide.”

(5/n) The survey of possible land for @TIFRH_buzz began in 2008. The foundation stone was unveiled in Oct 2010. Research commenced in 2011 & it was only in 2017 that the permanent campus became fully operational.This bears a strong resemblance to the initial years of @TIFRScience
(6/n) The ethos of @TIFRH_buzz can be described best by its advocacy for #interdisciplinarity. Also, the institute follows a 'department-less' structure, allowing scientists to truly understand, engage in and contribute to each other’s research.
(7/n) We started with one centre director, one faculty member, one student, one administrative officer, one staff member and one driver. The next nine years have witnessed how the small group grew into a larger yet tight-knit community. (Picture: In-house symposium 2018)
