ESO Movie 24: ALMA – The Atacama Large Millimeter Array

This movie documents on the status of the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA). ALMA will be comprised of some 64 12-meter, submillimetre-quality antennas at the high-altitude (5000 m) Llano de Chajnantor, possible the world's best site for millimetre astronomy, close to San Pedro de Atacama in northern Chile. Here, the European Southern Observatory (ESO), together with its international partners, will build ALMA a state-of-the-art telescope to study light from some of the coldest objects in the Universe. This light falls between infrared light and radio waves, with wavelengths around a millimetre and is therefore known as millimetre and submillimetre radiation.
