Virtual Tour details:

The Very Large Array Radio Telescope, located 50 miles west of Socorro, NM is currently closed to all visitors, but that doesn’t mean we can’t share our amazing observatory with you!

Join the NRAO STEAM Education team for a one of a kind virtual tour experience. Enjoy a personal, in-depth look at this world renowned radio telescope and the field of radio astronomy. The tour will include an introduction to the history and science of the Very Large Array, video segments that will transport the audience to parts of the observatory otherwise off limits to the public, and an appearance by one of the telescope operators, followed by a brief Q&A.

Oct 10, 2020 09:00 AM in Mountain Time (US and Canada)
