Kranzler & Phelps: The Drake Equation
In the 1950s the National Radio Quiet Zone was created to accommodate large scale radio telescopes in Green Bank, WV. For very different reasons, the world’s leading scientists and “electromagnetic hypersensitives” need an environment free from electromagnetic radio waves. Together, with the locals who live a very rural hunting lifestyle, they form the community of this very small village in Poccahontas County.
"Together with Paul Kranzler, I traveled to the small remote town of Green Bank, WV and spent several weeks with astrophysicists, bear hunters and electromagnetic hypersensitives to tell the story of this place called 'The Quiet Zone'"
