Cover images description: The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) is the world’s most powerful telescope for studying the Universe at submillimetre and millimetre wavelengths, on the boundary between infrared light and the longer radio waves. The picture shows a few of ALMA’s 66 high-precision antennas, spread over the Chajnantor plateau, at an altitude of 5000 metres in the Chilean Andes. The antennas are separated by up to 16 kilometres and they are used to study the chemical and physical conditions in molecular clouds — the dense regions of gas and dust where new stars are born.Credit:
