Welcome to central New Mexico where the National Radio Astronomy Observatory operates the world's most versatile radio telescope, the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array. Here, we have put together a collection of exclusive video tours we call the VLA Explorer.
Use the map beneath and the menus at right to select a stop you wish to visit, from New Mexico sights to behind-the-scenes peeks into VLA operations. At each stop, a video looks around and a host tells you more about what you're seeing. At several stops, you can watch a guided tour video with Dr. Rick Perley, an astronomer at the NRAO, and his colleagues. Visit us again, as we will continue to add new videos to the VLA Explorer.
Enjoy your virtual visit to the VLA.
