About Station151

Wayne Robertson is an astrophysicist at a radio telescope array in Antarctica who intercepts a series of transmissions from over half a billion light years away, and 176 years into the future. It is through these transmissions that he discovers the existence of Maxim Akihiko Broussad, a deranged genetic hybrid named Spegg, and a wealth of new technology that will ultimately doom the human race.

The Array

Station151, Antarctica’s first and only astronomical radio observatory, consists of 20 radio antennas in a Y-shaped configuration on Alexander Island, Antarctica’s largest island. Each antenna is 20 meters (65 feet) in diameter. The data from the antennas is combined electronically to give the resolution of an antenna 30km (18.6 miles) across, with the sensitivity of a dish 110 meters (361 feet) in diameter.
