Nerd alert: Jodrell Bank Radio Telescope

Bust of Copernicus there

The radio telescope is mounted on circular rails. The tilt mechanism (best seen at the bottom of the middle arcs in the first picture) were taken from the 15-inch gun turrets of dismantled battleships Royal Sovereign and Revenge. The entire structure was built by Sheffield bridge engineers. Apparently the problems of budget blow-out were soon forgotten when Jodrell Bank intercepted the radio echo of the Ballistic missile that the Soviets used to put Sputnik into space.

On the English North - South cultural divide: Korea has nothing.
