The Very Large Array (VLA) is one of the most powerful radio telescopes in the world. It is situated in the high plains of central New Mexico, in the Rio Grande watershed, an area uniquely suitable for astronomical observation. The VLA draws scientists from around the world, bringing new life, science, and diversity. It listens to intergalactic noise, to the sounds of black holes and pulsars and astronomical features unimaginable distances away from our home. Each image, each experiment, each picture tells us about the universe that we live in, about how our tiny planet fits into the greater macrocosm.
