The World’s Largest Steerable Telescope Is Right Here In West Virginia And You’ll Want To Plan Your Visit
If there’s one thing that can be said about West Virginians (actually there are MANY good things to say about us), it’s that we are extraordinarily great listeners. In fact, we have the biggest ear in the world. It’s true… the biggest, steerable, radio telescope (translation: listening device) in the world is located here in the Mountain State and you don’t need to be a science nerd (sorry science nerds… ) to be wow’d by it.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Ready to visit? The Green Bank Observatory and Science Center is located at 155 Observatory Rd., Green Bank, WV 24944. It’s open to the public and admission to the Science Center is free.
