ALMA image of the gravitationally lensed galaxy SDP.81

The bright orange central region of the ring (ALMA's highest-resolution observation ever) reveals the glowing dust in this distant galaxy. The surrounding lower-resolution portions of the ring trace the millimetre-wavelength light emitted by carbon dioxide and water molecules.
