ESOcast 56: Gentle Giants in the Desert
For our newest ESOcast, we pose this puzzle: how do you move a 100-tonne giant ALMA antenna 30 kilometres up onto the oxygen-starved Chajnantor Plateau, 5000 metres above sea level and finish the job with millimetre precision?
More episodes of the ESOcast are also available.
