Examples of astronomy research and IT at ING

The Wide-Field Survey with the INT Wide-Field Camera. This survey is a good example of how big science projects can now benefit from the large available detectors and the new developments in data storage and availability.
The First ever Direct Observation of an Extra-solar Planet. This major discovery was achieved thanks to the combination of fast computers, development of dedicated software and lots of high-quality data from the WHT.
IT at ING: some interesting figures.
