The National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) and Associated Universities, Inc. (AUI) are launching a new initiative to design a next generation radio telescope with scientific capabilities far beyond those provided by any existing or currently proposed observatory. Funding for the new initiative was provided by the National Science ...
A fly through of the protoplanetary disk around HL Tau, first as seen by ALMA and the VLA, which do not have the necessary frequency coverage or angular resolution to probe into the terrestrial planet formation zone. The ngVLA will be able to peer into the center of this solar system on ~AU scales, uncovering terrestrial planets in formation ...
A cartoon flyover of the ngVLA using a notional configuration. The array contains 214 18m antennas covering areas of New Mexico, Texas, and Mexico. The incorporation of the ngVLA into the existing VLBA is also shown.

The predicted performance of the array, based on feedback from the community following the June 2017 ngVLA Science and Technology meeting in Socorro, is described in ngVLA Memo 17.
A fly through deep space showing the ngVLA's ability to both detect cold molecular gas, the fuel for star formation, at all redshifts. In addition to detecting these gas, the ngVLA will have the sensitivity and resolution to map and characterize this gas on kilo parsec scales as well as measure galaxy kinematics using these molecular lines.
