ALMA trailer

This is the trailer of ALMA, the largest astronomical project in existence.

A state-of-the-art telescope to study light with wavelengths of about one millimetre, shining from some of the coldest objects in the Universe, ALMA is a cooperation of the European Southern Observatory (ESO), together with its international partners. The site of ALMA is the 5000-m altitude Chajnantor plateau in northern Chile, one of the driest places on Earth.
