What an Unusual Observatory (52 pics)

Posted in PICTURES       17 Aug 2012       7878       7 GALLERY VIEW



The Arecibo Observatory is a radio telescope near the city of Arecibo in Puerto Rico. You may recognize it from various movies such as GoldenEye or The Losers, TV series like The X-Files or even video games (GoldenEye 007 or Just Cause 2).

 

Fyi: the observatory's 305 m (1,000 ft) radio telescope is the largest single-aperture telescope ever constructed.

Yep, been there. It's on the north coast of PR. It's nice actually but not a whole lot if you suffer from acrophobia or if you're not chasing a villain.

It is not unusual, especially to anyone that has ever participated in the [email protected] project.

I wonder if I can find my old stats. I took part in it when it first started in the late 90s. Had a rack of 4 computers working. :p
