Happy \(\pi\) day, Mathstodon! #piday
This is MPAR ATD, a phased array antenna installed at The National Severe Storms Lab in Norman, OK. Each stitch is an antenna in the array, 4,864 total. Each 8x8 section outlined in black is a stand-alone panel that can be swapped out. Phased arrays are cool 🤓 #Radar #crossStitch #science #art #hiddenRainbow
