Radio Astronomy in the News
The VLA made the first detection of radio waves coming from the neutron-star collision that generated a ripple of gravitational waves. Radio telescopes will continue to reveal new facts about this phenomenon in the coming months.
Astronomers from a Canadian consortium will develop a data center to perform advanced processing of VLA Sky Survey data to augment its scientific value.
