How far do you suppose you would have to travel to find the world’s largest fully-steerable radio telescope? Hawaii? South America? While both of those places boast excellent astronomical destinations, neither house the particularly massive sky eye we’re referencing. On the contrary, you actually don’t have to travel far at all: the world’s largest fully steerable radio telescope is right here in Green Bank, West Virginia.
Times, days, availability, restrictions, and guidelines for these tours change, and advance registration is required, so make sure you have all the latest info to ensure the success of your visit by heading to the Green Bank Observatory website before you go. Plus, be sure to read up on the Green Bank area, in general, so it doesn’t come as a surprise when your cell phone doesn’t work as you are passing through this area.
