Very Large Array
Very Large Array dishes dot the San Agustin Plains in West Central New Mexico. On March 31, 2012, the array was renamed the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array, after the discoverer of radio waves emanating from the Milky Way galaxy in 1931.
Karl Jansky subsequently became one of the founding fathers of radio astronomy. Recent upgrades to the array replaced 1970s-era electronics with state-of-the-art receiving and processing equipment.
