A cosmic selfie

Striking a pose in the centre of this dramatic image is ESO Photo Ambassador Petr Horálek. Under the brilliant arc of the Milky Way, Horálek is standing amongst the antennas of the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), which studies light of wavelengths between infrared and radio. This gives it the capability to observe some of the coldest objects in the Universe.
