National Radio Astronomy Observatory
Green Bank West Virginia (WV), Chrome unused

Description:
The 140 foot radio telescope at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory was completed in the spring of 1965. It is the largest equatorially mounted radio telescope in the world. Its antenna has a diameter of 140 feet, and is 200 feet above the ground - also it is fully steerable in spite of its weighing over 2,500 ton. This radio telescope collects, simplifies, and measures radio waves from outer space enabling astronomers to compile new information about our universe
