Caption

The 300-metre diameter radio telescope at Arecibo, Puerto Rico, the largest radio dish in the world. The wire mesh of its reflecting surface hugs the concave interior of a natural bowl in the jungle. Because it is fixed, not steerable, the Arecibo telescope makes use of the rotation of Earth to turn its field of view across the sky.
