The Dish

The Dish [thee·dish] n. 1. a 150' disc-shaped radiotelescope still actively used in research projects that's nestled on a crest in the Stanford Foothills behind the lake; a campus icon both due to its history and scenic location, it's often featured in official University photos. 2. the scenic foothills area surrounding the radiotelescope. *note: runners, hikers and walkers fondly "do the Dish" (take the winding hilly increasing elevation path that circles up and around the telescope); open to the public from sunrise to sunset unless otherwise noted.
