Historic Space Images From The Arecibo Observatory | Popular Science

When Cornell University built the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico—near the equator, so it could observe the planets without needing to move its 1,000-foot-wide reflector—people hadn't even set foot on the moon yet. They wouldn't for another six years.

Since its construction, Arecibo has contributed to generations of astronomy. Researchers first set its radar and radio instruments to discover basics, such as the speed of Mercury and Venus' rotations and the surface features of the moon and planets neighboring the Earth. Later, data from the observatory would lead to the discovery of the first planetary system revolving around an alien sun. Today, it is still one of the world's largest radio telescopes and is available to scientists 24 hours a day, every day. Astronomers use Arecibo data especially to study far-off objects such as galaxies, asteroids and pulsars, the rotating neutron stars that emit radio energy in regular waves.

Human Teleportation Would Take Quadrillions Of Years, Physics Students Say

In the original Star Trek series, it took mere seconds for Scotty to beam Captain Kirk back aboard the Enterprise. But a new paper by physics students at the University of Leicester in England shows that if human teleportation were possible in real life, beaming someone from point A to point B would take, um, a bit longer.
