A world-historic event marked at world-class place in West Virginia

The national media repeatedly writes about the worst things and stupidest cliches about West Virginia. That’s all the more reason to highlight a world-class facility deep in our hills, the Green Bank Observatory, a trailblazer in American radio astronomy.

Recently, Green Bank celebrated the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11, the first crewed mission to land on the moon in 1969. “Humans are built to explore,” said Dr. Chris Impey, as part of a talk about the historic mission and urge to explore that
continues to this day at Green Bank.
