Al Jazeera Witness documentary film by Marta Miskaryan 
The film follows an Armenian scientist Arevik Sargsyan, who is trying to revive her uncle's giant radio-telescope.

Armenian radio-engineer Arevik Sargsyan has struggled throughout her life to preserve ROT54, a giant telescope built by her uncle Paris Herouni in the 1980s. But the collapse of the Soviet Union meant that ROT54 was left abandoned for 30 years.

Now, Arevik is attempting to take control of the telescope and prove it still works. In the face of personal and political difficulties, Arevik must overcome her biggest challenge yet.
