A huge radio telescope and a cemetery of pursuit planes

At the 26th kilometre of Shelkovskoe Highway not far the village Medvezhi Ozera, there is a center of space communication. On its territory you can find one of the four largest radio telescopes of the former USSR, built in 1983. The diameter of its antenna is 60 meters.
