About this Image

The Very Large Array telescope consists of twenty-seven, 230-ton, 25-meter diameter dish antennas that together they comprise a single radio telescope system. The VLA has made key observations of black holes and protoplanetary disks around young stars, discovered magnetic filaments and traced complex gas motions at the Milky Ways center, probed the Universes cosmological parameters, and provided new knowledge about the physical mechanisms that produce radio emission.
