Recent developments have greatly increased the angular resolution attainable in radio astronomy. The largest reflectors give a resolution of 2 to 3 min of are, close to that of the unaided human eye. Interplanetary scintillations and interferometry give 10^(-3) sec of arc and higher; this exceeds the resolution of Michelson's stellar interferometer by more than an order of magnitude, and is comparable to the highest resolution attained by the optical intensity interferometer (1).
