At the dish of the world's eighth largest radio telescope in Irbene, Latvia

61 votes
32-meter fully steerable parabolic antenna RT-32 of the Ventspils International Radio Astronomy Centre.

The world’s eighth-largest radio telescope can be found in Kurzeme, not very far from the seaside between Kolka and Ventspils. Even today, the massive dish of the radio telescope, used during the Cold War years by the Soviet military to spy on Western adversaries, towers above the pine summits. Now, it is a place where Latvian scientists explore stars and listen to the sounds of the universe.
