ARISE (Advanced Radio Interferometry between Space and Earth)

(Candidate mission for new start 2008-2013)

The ARISE spacecraft will use Space Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) between the Earth and space to "see" massive black holes far better than possible today. In other words, ARISE will work together with radio telescopes on Earth from way out in space to create a very long baseline...much farther than is possible between two radio telescopes on Earth. In the image, the active galactic nuclei in the galaxy is powered by a massive black hole, which creates the jets shooting out.
