|The location of the most powerful Italian radio telescope in the island of Sardinia has been motivated by several scientific goals.|
|The Westerbork Synthesis Radio Telescope (WSRT) (near camp Westerbork, north of the village of Westerbork, Midden-Drenthe, in the northeastern Netherlands) is an aperture synthesis interferometer that consists of a linear array of 14 antennas arranged on a 2.7 km East-West line. It has a similar arrangement to other radio telescopes such as the One-Mile Telescope and the Ryle Telescope. Ten of ...||11/17/2005||523|

|A 17-story Millimetre Radio telescope being assembled atop of the 15,000-foot La Negra dormant volcano. |
It will probe the origins of the universe with an antenna dish the size of a baseball infield.
The Large Millimetre Telescope is a bi-national project sponsored by both U.S. and Mexican governments and institutions to build the largest single-dish millimetre-wavelength radio t...
|The Ryle Telescope was a linear east-west radio telescope array at the Mullard Radio Astronomy Observatory. In 2004 three of the telescopes were moved to create a compact two-dimensional array of telescopes at the east end of the interferometer. The remaining five antennas were switched off on 19 June 2006. The eight antennas have now become the Arcminute Microkelvin Imager Large Array.||10/03/2009||292|

|The Parkes Observatory is a radio telescope observatory, 20 kilometres north of the town of Parkes, New South Wales, Australia. It was one of several radio antennas used to receive images of the Apollo 11 moon landing in July 1969.
|Arecibo Observatory, Puerto Rico.|
The observatory's radio telescope is the largest single telescope in the world, also known from the US-movie "Contact". In contrast to most other this telescopes is not tiltable and swivelling.
Diameter: 305 m (1000 ft)
Focus lenght: 132.5 m (434 ft)
|The Jodrell Bank Observatory (originally the Jodrell Bank Experimental Station, then the Nuffield Radio Astronomy Laboratories from 1966-1999) is located near Congleton, Cheshire in the northwest of England. The observatory is part of the University of Manchester and has played an important role in the research of quasars and pulsars. In 1979, scientists at Jodrell Bank announced the first dete...||08/01/2005||1,182|
|Astrophysical Observatory of the Russian Academy of Sciences.|
The BTA-6 has a prime mirror diameter of 6 m and is housed in a 48 m diameter dome at an altitude of 2,070 m. Seeing first light in late 1975, it held the record for the largest telescope in the world from its completion until 1993 when it was surpassed by the Keck 1 telescope in Hawaii.
|Cerro Paranal, a 2,635 m high mountain in the Atacama desert in northern Chile, famous for hosting the Very Large Telescope (VLT) and the VLT Survey Telescope (VST). It is located 120 km south of Antofagasta and 80 km north of Tal-Tal, 12 km inland. Coordinates 24░ 37′ 38″ S 70░ 24′ 17″ W.||08/03/2005||754|
