Antennas to the Universe

ALMA is an array of 66 antennas located in the Chajnantor Plateau in the Chilean Andes. The 100-tonne antennas have the highest sensitivity of any receivers working at millimetre/submillimetre wavelengths. The whole array forms the most powerful astronomical telescope of its kind, studying the building blocks of stars, planetary systems, galaxies and life itself.
