World Largest Radio Telescope

Posted on September 29, 2013 by team


There is an interesting astrophysical observatory in Karachay-Cherkessia that owns the world’s largest radio telescope RATAN-600 (“600″ – means the diameter – 600 meters), and the largest in Eurasia reflecting telescope with the main mirror whose diameter is equal to six meters. We thought it could be a nice idea to visit this place.

“RATAN-600″.

In Russian “RATAN” means “a radioaastronomical telescope of the Academy of Sciences”. It was put into operation in July, 1974 and is still functioning.

There is a “Pillar of Peace” nearby once set by the UN, such pillars can be seen in more than 120 countries of the world today.
