April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online With personal electronics, smaller is almost always better. The same is becoming true with satellite technology – which is shrinking to about the size of a shoebox. Making space exploration cheaper and more accessible, “CubeSats” and other small satellites can be launched into orbit at a fraction of the weight and cost of traditional satellites. Miniaturization has its limitations, however, such as a satellite’s communication...

Radio telescopes, used in tracking and collecting data from satellites and space probes, are a form of directional radio antenna used in radio astronomy. They operate on the radio frequency portion of the electromagnetic spectrum where they detect radio sources. Radio telescopes are large parabolic antennas used singly or in an array and are located far from major centers of population in order to avoid electromagnetic interference. Karl Guthe Jansky built the first radio antenna used to...

Very Large Array -- The Very Large Array, one of the world's premier astronomical radio observatories, consists of 27 radio antennas in a Y-shaped configuration on the Plains of San Agustin fifty miles west of Socorro, New Mexico. Each antenna is 25 meters (82 feet) in diameter. The data from the antennas is combined electronically to give the resolution of an antenna 36km (22 miles) across, with the sensitivity of a dish 130 meters (422 feet) in diameter. The VLA is an...
