Photographer Alastair Philip Wiper was recently given the opportunity to capture images of The Radio Anechoic Chamber at Denmark’s Technical University. Operated with the European Space Agency, the research facility was first opened in 1967 and is mainly used to test antennas. The blue chamber inside minimizes any reflections of microwaves, and its large foam spikes are filled with carbon and iron to absorb radio waves.
Along with testing the effectiveness of antennas, the facility is a great place to simulate the conditions of space too.
The size of the foam spikes, along with the randomness with which they are scattered about, make the facility a photographer’s dream project.
