The VLA (Very Large Array) is the ultimate extension of our senses, allowing us to map the voices of the cosmos, dying stars screaming their last words at us across the electro-magnetic spectrum. Here the constant cacophony of radio waves bathing us is brought to the surface, bringing us the cosmic depths. The VLA connects us to the beginning of time; the cycles of nebulae & supernovae & birth & death that constantly transforms the living, singing cosmos.
