GBT – Jansky Antenna

This is an exact replica of the antenna Karl Jansky used when he discovered, by accident, radio waves coming from the center of the Milky Way. Jansky designed and built the rotating antenna in 1928 to identify the courses of static that might interfere with radio communications.
