Hi All - I could not believe what was in my email this morning.  The NJ Zoning people may regulate to allow *The Horn* to be destroyed. The whole story is below, but let me mention that I was most fortunate to get a tour of the horn in 1992, including being let into  the electronics room at the base.  Everything was still there, as it was in the 1960's (with an added collection of spider webs). They had left all the old instruments.  It seemed like a sacred place!  It was here that Wilson and Penzias had done the measurements confirming the Big Bang creation of the Universe!!  And the horn is still there.  But, it is being threatened!

So, if you can, please sign the petition linked below to ask for some preservation to The Horn.  Feel free to circulate this, of course.  Thanks, Bob

By the way, the unplanned discovery  is also a great story: for a quick version.

Sign the petition! Holmdel Township Committee, Monmouth County Board of Freeholders, NJ State Legislature: Save Big Bang Antenna

 I just signed a petition to preserve the Holmdel Horn Antenna, a National Historic Landmark used by two Bell Labs Nobel Prize winners to confirm the Big Bang Theory of the creation of the universe.

Please join me and sign this important petition as well.


I signed a petition on Action Network telling Holmdel Township Committee, Monmouth County Board of Freeholders, NJ State Legislature to Save Big Bang Antenna.

The historic Horn Antenna, which confirmed the “Big Bang Theory” of cosmology, sits on 42 beautiful acres of Holmdel Township named Crawford Hill. The location is the highest point in Monmouth County.   The antenna and land are being endangered to become a high-density residential development of 100-200 townhomes.

 Concerned Citizens for Informed Land Use (CILU), Friends of Holmdel Open Space (FHOS) and Preserve Holmdel (PH) say NO to developing the property and moving the Horn Antenna.
 We say YES, to keeping the Horn Antenna and the property it sits on being PRESERVED IN PERPETUITY AS A PUBLIC PARK.

 Please sign our petition urging the Holmdel Township Committee, the Monmouth County Board of Freeholders, and our legislators to preserve the Horn Antenna and Crawford Hill.
