Jodrell Bank: Fiftieth Anniversary

  • Patrick Moore
Chapter

Abstract

Go to Jodrell Bank, near Macclesfield in Cheshire, and you will see the 250-ft Lovell radio telescope. In fact you cannot possibly miss it, because it dominates the entire landscape. It is a miracle of engineering even today and was even more so in 1957, when it first came into action. It was the brainchild of Professor Sir Bernard Lovell; but for him it would never have been built, and radio astronomy would not be so advanced as it actually is.
