Very Large Array observatory reveals the universe

The Very Large Array, or VLA, is a complex of 27 massive antennas on the Plains of San Agustin in central New Mexico, all pointing skyward to monitor radio emissions from the cosmos. With support from the National Science Foundation, astronomers use this facility to observe the most dynamic, cataclysmic events in the universe.
