The world's most photogenic radio telescopes row is also one of the most productive. Each of the 27 radio telescopes in the Very Large Array (VLA) is the size of a house and must be moved by means of rails.

The VLA began its productive activity in May 1980. In the photograph we see him in joint formation in front of the Tres Montosas, New Mexico, USA.

The VLA has been used to discover water on the planet Mercury, radio-bright crowns around ordinary stars, micro-quasars in our Galaxy, Einstein's induced gravitational lenses around distant galaxies, and homologous signals to very distant gamma-ray bursts. cosmologically

The large size of the VLA has allowed astronomers to study the details of super fast cosmic jets, and even the map of the center of our Galaxy.
