New Telescope
On October 13, dedication ceremonies for the newest telescope at National Radio Astronomy Observatory at Green Bank will be held. Invitations have been sent to scientists, trustees of Associated Universities, Inc., sponsors, and people connected with the erection of the telescope. Dr. Bill Howard is in charge of the dedication plans.
Leland J. Haworth, director of the National Science Foundation, will speak.
The telescope is the largest high precision instrument in the world. Its 140 foot dish is a solid surface shaped paraboloid and is now detecting radio waves from space. Its main purpose it to provide a very large, highly accurate telescope for use by radio astronomers throughout the country. The purpose of the observatory, which is operated by a group of universities under the direction of the National Science Foundation, is to make available to all scientists equipment that is too expensive for any one university to provide.
The newest telescope, costing over ten million dollars, was built mainly by Pacific Crane and Rigging and Stone and Webster, with a giant bearing by Westinghouse.
