Very Large Array ~ by xYz — the pseudonym of Joanna Tilsley, British biologist and poet; from 30 Days, an unusual and bewitching series of “quantum poetry.”


"The Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) is a radio astronomy observatory located on the Plains of San Agustin, in New Mexico, USA. Each of the 27 antennae in the array measures 25 metres (82 feet) in diameter and weighs about 230 tons. The VLA is an interferometer, which means that the data from each antenna can be combined electronically so that the array effectively functions as one giant antenna. It has made key observations of black holes and protoplanetary disks around young stars; discovered magnetic filaments and traced complex gas motions at the Milky Way’s center; probed the Universe’s cosmological parameters; and provided new knowledge about the physical mechanisms that produce radio emission. The source image of the VLA I used in this graphic is courtesy of NRAO/AUI and NRAO."
