Arecibo Observatory for All
Bartus, P.; Isidro, G. M.; La Rosa, C.; Pantoja, C. A.
Astronomy Education Review, v6 n1 p1-14 Apr-Nov 2007
We describe new materials available at the Arecibo Observatory for visitors with visual impairments. These materials include a guide in Braille that describes the telescope, explains some basic terms used in radio astronomy, and lists frequently asked questions. We have also designed a tactile model of the telescope. Our interest is in enabling blind visitors to participate in the excitement of visiting the world's largest radio telescope. (Contains 1 table, 5 figures, and 4 notes.)
