The Plains of San Agustin in New Mexico are home to the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA), comprised of 27 radio telescopes, each 25 metres (82ft) in diameter. These immensely powerful telescopes have been used to observe black holes and protoplanets, and to probe the parameters of the universe.
