Most Recent Episode: Astronomy Careers - More Than Meets the Eye
When you think of astronomy jobs what comes to mind? Maybe people who look through telescopes, people who build telescopes or people who study space? We traveled to the Green Bank Observatory, home to the largest fully steerable radio telescope. And when we say large we mean HUGE! This telescope weighs 17 million pounds and its main dish is larger than a football field. Join us as we get up close and personal with the telescope and meet the people who keep it listening to the far corners of the universe.
