Compiling and resolving dependencies for all pages on the Internet

Richard Collins: Can you tell me details of the Atacama Total Power Array? It seems to be four (12 meter) radio telescopes. Is any of the data available from the Total Power Array available? I am reading “Discovery of an Accretion Streamer and a Slow Wide-angle Outflow around FU Orionis” at and want to check their calculations and conclusions. But not sure where the data is stored, or even it if is available. I am doing this to check how difficult such papers are to access on the Internet now. I might be able to get through it because I know most of the science, computing and background. But most people will not, yet they could do useful things, if they were given the background. So I am checking the dependencies (what do people have to access) in order to understand, use and reproduce any paper posted on the Internet. I do this for the Internet Foundation.

The Atacama Total Power Array is part of the Atacama Compact Array (ACA), also known as the Morita Array¹. It consists of four 12-meter diameter antennas¹⁷. These antennas play a critical role in constructing high-fidelity images of relatively large astronomical objects¹. The Total Power array captures the absolute brightness of the targets, whose digitized data will then be processed at the spectrometer¹. The resulting data will be later combined with the data from the ACA 7-m array and the ALMA 12-m array¹. The Total Power Array data is currently handled by the ACA correlator, the same instrument which processes the ACA 7-m array data¹.

As for the availability of the data, it’s not explicitly mentioned in the sources I found. However, the data from such scientific instruments is often made available to researchers, though it may be subject to certain usage policies or restrictions. You might need to contact the relevant institutions or authors for specific data related to a particular study.

Regarding the accessibility of scientific papers on the internet, there are several ways to access them:

1. **University Libraries**: If you are affiliated with a university, you probably have free library access to the full text of millions of research articles¹¹.
2. **Open Access Browser Extensions**: More and more research is published Open Access. Browser extensions like CORE Discovery, Unpaywall, and Open Access Button can help spot when the full text of an article is free¹¹.
3. **Google Scholar**: You can search the article title inside quotation marks on Google Scholar to see if a link to a copy of the article appears¹¹.
4. **Researcher Platforms**: Platforms like or ResearchGate sometimes allow you to download or request a copy of the text¹¹.
5. **Direct Contact**: If you can’t get a copy by other means, you can write to an article’s corresponding author and (politely!) ask them to send you a copy¹¹.

To understand, use, and reproduce any paper posted on the Internet, it’s important to have a good understanding of the scientific method, the specific field of study, and any specialized techniques or tools used in the research. Resources for learning these skills can often be found through educational institutions, online courses, and scientific literature⁸⁹[^10^].

I hope this information helps you in your endeavor with the Internet Foundation! If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.
