Yesterday's event demonstrated the first real-time correlation results
from Chinese-Australian and Chinese-European baselines. Data were also
obtained from an Australian-European baseline for a short time as the
target source set and rose in observing areas on opposite sides of the
earth) .

Many thanks to all the astronomers, network engineers and others who
worked so hard to make this such an impressive demonstration.

best wishes to all
