Welcome to the Arecibo Observatory’s Control Room... "Here is where the science Happens”. From our Control room, scientists on our staff and around the world along with our specialized Operations Technicians/Observers , will study the weak echoes bounced off the Ionosphere, with our UHF transmitter, receive signals from celestial objects like Pulsars, Galaxies, Quasars and the mysterious FRB (Fast Radio Bursts) pulses along with also receiving the echoes from the transmitted signals at S-Band, to the nearby planets, comets and asteroids - with the latter’s ever-present threat to our planet as they travel around our sun. Enjoy your visit, Angel M. Vazquez Head of Telescope Operations.
