    I don’t know what it is, but when y’all are done with the contest, can I have it?!

    What would you use it for? Just curious. 🙂

    I think my intention with it might actually be it’s original design, since it won’t accept my comment! Or… knowing me… just put in on a shelf in front of my workbench and admire it! Eventually, I am sure inspiration would hit and that beautiful piece of machinery would be just the ticket! lol 😀

    Hate to spoil it for everyone, but it is one of multiple proprietary instrumentation equipment panels utilized to track the Allen Telescope Array of 42 radio telescopes located in northern California to search for signs of intelligent life in the universe.

    Similar devices can be seen in the movie Contact where Jodi Foster portrays Dr. Eleanor “Ellie” Arroway who is a Science Advisor employed by Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Institute (SETI) to conduct research at the Arecibo Observatory facility in Puerto Rico.
