Taking advantage of an innovative survey camera (APERTIF), custom-built for the Westerbork radio telescope, the atomic hydrogen gas in tens of thousands of galaxies will be studied in great detail over the next 5 years. The wide field-of-view of APERTIF allows for the efficient mapping of vast regions of the Universe and provides an unprecedented perspective on the important role of hydrogen gas in the evolution of galaxies over the past 3 billion years of cosmic time. More information about Apertif is available on the website of Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomiy Astron.
