Telegraph Hill, New Jersey: site of the Horn Antenna radio telescope: It’s almost impossible to make out here, but atop this hill is the Horn Antenna radio telescope at Bell Labs’ Crawford Hill facility that Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson used to discover the microwave background radiation that pervades the universe, helping to prove the Big Bang theory of the creation of the universe. The Horn Antenna has been declared a National Historic Landmark, but it’s still on private property, and this was about as close as I was able to get to take a look at it. Too bad.
