Zooming in on ALMA's view of the Orion Nebula

This video starts with a broad view of the sky and zooms in on the familiar constellation of Orion (The Hunter). We then get a closeup view of the Orion Nebula star formation region. In the final sequence we see the strange red filaments of cool gas that ALMA has revealed.
