Introduction
We run the world's premier radio telescopes, including: the world's largest, fully-steerable single dish telescope, the Green Bank Telescope (GBT); the most versatile radio telescope array, the Very Large Array (VLA); the most powerful submillimeter array, the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA); and the largest dedicated interferometer in the world, the Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA).
