Its called the One Mile Telescope and is made up of several moveable dishes, one of which runs down a track, driven by a train like affair on the dish's platform We only touched on a small part of the site today, definitley in need of a re-visit to mooch the rest Some History The Mullard Radio Astronomy Observatory (MRAO) is home to a number of large radio telescopes. Radio interferometry started in the mid-1940s on the outskirts of Cambridge, but with funding from the Science Research Council and a donation of £100,000 from Mullard Limited, construction of the Mullard Radio Astronomy Observatory commenced. The observatory was founded under Martin Ryle of the Radio-Astronomy Group of the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge and was opened by Sir Edward Victor Appleton on 25 July 1957 One Mile Telescope The One-Mile Telescope at the Mullard Radio Astronomy Observatory (MRAO) is an array of radio telescopes, fully steerable 60-ft-diameter parabolic reflectors operating simultaneously at 1407 MHz and 408 MHz) designed to perform aperture synthesis interferometry, completed by the Radio Astronomy Group of Cambridge University in 1964 "To extend the range of our observations far back in time to the earliest days of the Universe" These are the trains that move the middle telescope along the rail SK fancied a climb The offices Time to go home, it had been a very long day
