VLA - Very Large Array

The Very Large Array, one of the world's premier astronomical radio observatories, consists of 27 radio antennas in a Y-shaped configuration 50 miles west of Socorro, New Mexico. Each antenna is 82 feet (25 m) in diameter. The data from the antennas is combined electronically to give the resolution of an antenna 22 miles (36 km) across. Image courtesy of NRAO/AUI and NRAO

The Very Large Array: Radio telescopes can be found the world over. They are used in radio astronomy, the science of studying, at radio frequencies, celestial objects such as galaxies and stars as well as more difficult to understand phenomena such as Masers and Pulsars.

DSS-14. The 70-meter Antennae at Goldstone, CA. Twenty-four stories high, 230 feet across, it's one of only 3 in the world that are a part of the Deep Space Network. They overhauled the bearings on "World's Toughest Fixes" on NatGeo. Up close, it's just mindbogglingly huge, yet it turns amazingly fast for such a ginormous object. If you can visit any of the DSN complexes, do it. Goldstone requests a lot of security checks but they also have wild burros!  And a great little museum. Photo by…
