The young science of radio astronomy is able to discover facts about the universe far beyond the range of optical telescopes. The film shows the early and recent highly specialised radio telescopes in Australia, Canada, Puerto Rico, U.S.A. and Britain, and indicates problems of the structure and control of their steerable paraboloid aerials.
