Hello, I am doing research for a story but my question pertains directly to Astronomy so I felt it fit here better than the sci-fi board. The main character is an Astronomer who works in a lab that receives data from the Dish in Parkes Australia. The lab she works at does not have a telescope or any observation devices, they simply comb through the data sent from other observatories. The question is: what would her facility be called? is it still referred to as an observatory even though they don't have a dish or optical scope? All the research I have done so far returns with links to classic observatories. Is there a specific name for a lab like this? Thanks in advance.
