The Jodrell Bank Observatory in England, is an observatory that hosts a number of radio telescopes.
The main telescope at the observatory is the Lovell Telescope, which at 76m diameter, was the largest steerable radio telescope in the world at the time it was constructed.
The observatory was established in 1945 by Sir Bernard Lovell, who wanted to investigate cosmic rays after his work on radar in the Second World War. It has since played an important role in the research of meteors, quasars, pulsars, masers and gravitational lenses, and was heavily involved with the tracking of space probes at the start of the Space Age.
