Caption

Howard E. Tatel radio telescope, National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO), Green Bank, West Virginia, USA. Also called the 85-1, this 85 foot (25.91 metre) telescope was built at NRAO in 1958, the first of three of a similar design. Radio telescopes are directional radio antenna. They operate in the radio frequency portion of the electromagnetic spectrum where they can detect and collect data on radio sources. The 85-1 was involved in much of the pioneering radio astronomy that took place at NRAO, but eventually it was superseded by larger models and was instead converted into an interferometer in 1964.
