The infamous gnome

Just before it left Boolardy Station, the pudding took a picture with a friendly-looking gnome that apparently has quite a back story.

Rumour has it that this gnome used to live at CSIRO Astronomy & Space Science in Marsfield, but then was brought across Australia in a car by Suzy Jackson who took photos of the gnome along the way. Then, it was later the subject of a battle between ASKAP staff and MWA staff (who would try to steal it from each other) before finally disappearing for a while. Seemingly, it only recently resurfaced.

The pudding wasn’t able to hear the full story about this, but maybe one day in the future can report back with further details on this interesting gnome!
