AEM Consortium’s facility

This is a 360 degree panorama view of the AEM Consortium’s facility where the European antennas for the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) are assembled and tested. Some of the 25 European antennas can be seen, with each antenna having a dish 12 metres in diameter, and a weight of about 95 tonnes.

In the background, to the left, is the ALMA Operations Support Facility (OSF) site where the antennae are integrated into the rest of the observatory's systems.
