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.


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.
