House isn't selling. Had to cancel house away today. All the conservative white people want to leave. 84 homes for sale in my zip code. too many homes. 42% percent increase in homeless in San jose in the last month. I love this place.

Radio telescopes are just directional antennas.

I don't get to brag much as I have few accomplishments of my own. However, my father had many and they're all the more impressive knowing he was self taught.

Ah no, Arecibo Observatory is in the municipality of Arecibo, Puerto Rico. It is operated by University of Central Florida, Yang Enterprises and UMET, under cooperative agreement with the US National Science Foundation The observatory is the sole facility of the National Astronomy and Ionosphere Center (NAIC), which is the formal name of the observatory.From its construction in the 1960s until 2011, the observatory was managed by Cornell University.
The Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical radio Telescope nicknamed Tianyan. ("Sky Eye" or "The Eye of Heaven") is a radio telescope located in the Dawodang depression, a natural basin in Pingtang County, Guizhou Province, southwest China.
