Astronomers create virtual radio telescope
Posted: Wed, Oct 2, 2002, 8:07 AM ET (1207 GMT)
An international group of astronomers have linked together radio telescopes on three continents to create a virtual telescope with the sharpest resolution of any telescope to date. Astronomers combined simultaneous observations by radio telescopes in Arizona, Massachusetts, Chile, Spain, and Finland to create a single virtual telescope with a resolution 3,000 times greater than the Hubble Space Telescope: the equivalent of someone in New York being able to observe dimples on a golf ball in Los Angeles. Astronomers plan to use the virtual telescope to study how active galaxies generate jets of high-speed particles.
