For more than 40 years, the Very Large Array (VLA) has pushed the boundaries of human understanding. When it was dedicated in 1980, the VLA was the most powerful radio observatory in the world. In this book, we see how the VLA was constructed, the revolutionary discoveries it has made, and where the observatory will take us in the next 40 years.
