Drive by Shooting - Jodrell Bank Observatory

Drive by Shooting - Jodrell Bank Observatory

The observatory was established in 1945 by Sir Bernard Lovell, a radio astronomer at the University of Manchester who wanted to investigate cosmic rays after his work on radar during the Second World War.
It has since played an important role in the research of meteors, quasars, pulsars, masers and gravitational lenses, and was heavily involved with the tracking of space probes at the start of the Space Age

They are probably trying to find the Jade Rabbit. (Poor little guy.)
