Check out the largest single-dish radar-radio telescope in the world and see if you can use this government tool to detect life in outer space. The visitor center's hands-on exhibits explain aspects of atmospheric science and discuss why the radio telescope, large enough to fit more than 12 football fields, is located in an enormous sinkhole in Puerto Rico. If the site looks familiar, that's because it starred in the climactic scenes of the James Bond movie Goldeneye.
