Music and Sound Design by Fabián Wilkins
Arecibo Observatory has produced a new short (~18 minute) video detailing the history of the observatory, how experiments are conducted and ideas for the future. The observatory’s 305 m radio telescope is the largest single-aperture telescope (cf. multiple aperture telescope) ever constructed.
The telescope is visually distinctive and has been used in the filming of notable motion picture and television productions: as the villain’s antenna in the James Bond movie GoldenEye, as itself in the film Contact and in The X-Files episode “Little Green Men”.
