Reflection of the ALMA site. The ALMA site is situated in the Atacama Desert of northern Chile, this location is one of the driest in the world. Astronomers are subject to these harsh climate conditions in which they must operate. Chajnantor is at an elevation of over 2400 m higher than the VLT on Cerro Paranal. Due to its perfect location and large array of antennas, ALMA is the most powerful telescope for observing the cool Universe.
