National Radio Astronomy-Very Large Array
Socorro, NM- Nat'l Radio Astronomy Observatory: Very Large Array is a scientific facility that has a powerful telescope that observes the universe, night and day, 27 dish-shaped antennas are turned to a kind of light that eyes cannot see. The invisible light is in the form of radio waves. Unhindered, radio waves can travel billions of years across the vastness of space. They provide the VLA with the data that helps construct a timeline of the universe——from its ancient past to the possible future.
