This is a model of a radio telescope, an astronomic tool able to receive radio radiation from celestial objects in the solar system and other stars in our galaxy. It was unable to directly produce images, but it could measure the output of radiant energy coming from a given direction. Such radio telescopes are still more than a thousand times more precise then even the largest optical telescopes. They are also used to measure Earth's crust movements.
