Mission Control for the 140-foot
The original control room for the 140-foot telescope sits at the base of the telescope, inside a concrete building with walls that are 3-feet thick. The guidance and data systems lined the wall of this room on the ground floor. Three to four people would be in this room during early observations with the 140-foot telescope in the 1960s and 1970s, including operators, engineers, and astronomers. Now, the updated and renamed 43-meter telescope can be run by a laptop in a drawer!
