Green Bank Telescope



DescriptionRatingInfo
The Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope (GBT) is the world's largest fully steerable radio telescope and the world's largest land-based movable structure. It is part of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) site at Green Bank, West Virginia (USA). The telescope honors the name of Senator Robert C. Byrd. The telescope was built following the collapse of the previous Green Bank telescope, a 300ft paraboloid. This telescope collapsed on 15 November 1988 due to the sudden loss of a gusset plate in the box girder assembly, which was a key component for the structural integrity of the telescope. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_Bank_Telescope
