The Holmdel Horn Antenna


1960 | Espacio | PENZIAS
Personaje: PENZIAS, Arno Allan.

In 1964 Bell Labs’ scientists Bob Wilson and Arno Penzias were testing out a new antenna and they discovered a noise. A noise that seemed to be coming from... everywhere.

At first they thought the machinery was malfunctioning and then that droppings on the antenna from a nearby nest of pigeons might be responsible for the signal. When, at last, they discovered the source of the noise it proved to be one of the crucial scientific discoveries of the 20th century. A discovery that won them the 1978 Nobel Prize in Physics.
