Seems the Very Large Array is no longer an appropriate name for the Very Large Array. (I always thought it was rather descriptive).
The VLA, a radio telescope west of Socorro, NM, has been around since the 1970s, and a recent equipment upgrade was the impetus for a new name.
Entries will be accepted through December 1st.
I’m pushing for the T.O.U.S – Telescope of Unusual Size.
