About an array of telescopes on the backside of the moon which would explore the so-called "Dark Ages" near the beginning of the universe.
Physics professor Jacqueline Hewitt, director of MIT's Kavli Institute for Astrophysics and Space Science, stands behind a prototype of a radio telescope array.
LARC will make possible observations that cannot be made from Earth's surface. The Earth's ionosphere, high-altitude layer of electrically charged gas, obscures faint, low-frequency radio emissions. The other source of interference is, well, us. More specifically, our many emissions in the radio spectrum.
