A stunning view across the landscape of West Virginia and something seems just a little incongruous. Like something out of a Thunderbirds episode the National Radio Astronomy Observatory appears as if from nowhere. It was placed in the mountains to ensure the best reception of outer space radio signals. Amazingly, the size of the dish is larger than a football feed and the telescope is taller than the Statue of Liberty.
