  The world´s biggest telescope, the Square Kilometer Array (SKA), is set to be built in one of two locations depending on the outcome of bidding, which starts today. The $2 billion project will consist of thousands of dishes stretching out 1,900 miles, with a total surface area of one square kilometer. The system will generate enough raw data to fill 15 million 64Gb iPods every day, and will require a supercomputer 1,000 times faster -- equivalent to a billion PCs -- than...

An innovative new radio telescope array under construction in central New Mexico will eventually harness the power of more than 13,000 antennas and provide a fresh eye to the sky. The antennas, which resemble droopy ceiling fans, form the Long Wavelength Array, designed to survey the sky from horizon to horizon over a wide range of frequencies. The University of New Mexico leads the project, and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., provides the advanced digital electronic...

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...
