ALMA recounts of Cosmic Conundrums

Published: 15 Oct 2021

The European ARC network is launching the new virtual talk series "ALMA recounts of Cosmic Conundrums". In every talk of this series a major astronomical question is discussed. The invited speaker will describe the context of the question and then focuses on the ALMA contribution to the field, past and future. The aim of the series is to highlight the unparalleled contribution of ALMA to the broader astronomical landscape and to provide an outlook towards the future. 

The first talk of this series will take place December 1 at 14:00 CET. The talks will be broadcast through the Youtube channel of the European ALMA Regional Centre network.  More information on the first talk will be included in the November newsletter.
