ESOcast 151: Chile Chill 11– ALMA from the Air

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

Sprawling across the Atacama Desert, 66 antennas work in unison with extraordinary precision to make the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA). Together, these antennas capture images similar to what could be achieved using a single telescope measuring up to 16 kilometres in diameter.

This ESOcast brings you sweeping views of the ALMA telescope, the largest millimetre/sub-millimetre telescope in the world, as it searches for our cosmic origins.

You can subscribe to the ESOcasts on iTunes, receive future episodes on YouTube or follow us on Vimeo.

Many other ESOcast episodes are also available.

ALMA, an international astronomy facility, is a partnership of #eso, the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Institutes of Natural Sciences (NINS) of Japan in cooperation with the Republic of Chile.
