The Great Big Thing, a.k.a. the GBT or the Green Bank Telescope, stands nearly 500 ft. tall. Its dish is larger than one and a half football fields. It cost almost $80,000,000 to build and is the largest land-based, moveable, manmade object in the world. This ride is an all-day affair. Starting in Lexington, VA, you’ll negotiate narrow Goshen Pass, take in some farm country, and possibly learn a thing or two about radio astronomy in Green Bank, WV. You’ll return to Staunton, VA on a road designed and built by Napoleon’s engineers, because U.S. engineers thought it was insane to bend a road through those mountains.
