Very Large Array

About a 30 minute drive east of Pie Town is the Very Large Array. The VLA consists of a bunch of gigantic radio telescopes mounted on rails that can be moved around. When they're in their largest configuration, they cover an area the size of Washington DC.

On the official tour, the role the VLA plays in looking for aliens is downplayed. Melody thought that was suspicious.
