ESOcast 3: The ALMA observatory gets its first 'eye'
In this third episode of the ESOcast Dr. J takes us to the site of ALMA, the Atacama Millimeter / submillimeter Array in the Atacama region in Chile. ALMA is an observatory under construction 5000 metres above sea-level, on the plateau of Chajnantor – high enough to be literally breathtaking.
More episodes of the ESOcast are also available.
