Puerto Rico Observatory—The Biggest in the World
Abstract:The Arecibo Observatory's radio telescope is the most precise telescope ever created by man for extra-planetary research. The telescope utilizes modern surveying techniques and supports important research that will help us to understand better our planet and other close celestial bodies. Understanding the workings and history of the Arecibo Observatory is thus relevant to the understanding of the great scientific advancements that have been made possible by the radio telescope.
