Revealing a Invisible Universe

Though many vast phenomena are manifest to us, most of a star is dark from view, vaporous by gas and dust. After a serendipitous find of radio waves entrance from a Milky Way’s core in a 1930s, scientists satisfied radio waves, that have a longer wavelength than manifest light, could exhibit many aspects of vast phenomena not manifest in other wavelengths.


For some-more than 60 years, a National Science Foundation (NSF) has invested in state-of-the-art comforts to allege a margin of radio astronomy, starting with a nation’s initial astronomical observatory—the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO). Today, NSF supports radio telescopes from West Virginia to a Chilean Andes.


The following images offer a practical debate of some of those telescopes and their discoveries.
