The Tycho Project was a network of radio telescopes around the world. They sought friendly life in outer space. Amongst its targets was Rigel Beta Five. (TV: The Last Sontaran) The Tycho project was named after the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe. (PROSE: The Last Sontaran) As of 2009, the Tycho project was still unsuccessful.
One of its telescopes, located in Goblin's Copse in England, was converted from a Cold War listening station. This station was taken over by Commander Kaagh, a survivor of the Tenth Sontaran Battle Fleet which had attempted invasion of Earth. (TV: The Last Sontaran)
