The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.

This is actually legit!

There are still large "semi-elliptical" concrete structures on the English East Coast, the concrete structures reflected the sounds of incoming aircraft to a central microphone as a listening device, quite successful and was still developing when Radar overtook it.  :sip:

Yes, these are at Denge.

If you go to Sci-bono, they have acoustic mirrors.

Wait! But I thought that space was a soundless environment due to the lack of atmosphere?

They want to make a radio telescope, not a sound listening device.
