Some things we just cannot see, no matter how big a telescope we use. Things get in the way like galactic gas and dust, but to radio astronomers this is not a problem they can see through this obscuring material. The main problem for radio astronomers working with considerable longer wavelengths than optical astronomers, is they would need impossibly large telescopes! But they have a trick or two up their sleeves to get around this, one of those tricks was developed here at Cambridge.
