Bosque del Apache 2016 - Part 3
50 miles west of Socorro, NM is the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array. This is one of the worlds largest astronomical radio telescope systems, composed of 27 separate 85 foot wide radio telescopes arranged in a "Y" configuration, which all operate together to simulate the behavior of a much larger single radio telescope.
After visiting the VLA, we returned to visiting Bosque del Apache.
