Latest Atacama Large Millimeter Array Stories
Nestled among a triplet of young galaxies more than 12.5 billion light-years away is a cosmic powerhouse: a galaxy that is producing stars nearly 1,000 times faster than our own Milky Way.
In 1987 astronomers witnessed the violent death of a giant star in the form of a supernova, and now researchers have published results of their extensive ‘autopsy’ which yielded surprising results.
The first images captured with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array's new high-resolution capabilities have given researchers their best look ever at the process of planet formation around an infant star.

Scientists using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array in Chile have observed a very exciting phenomenon — the exchange of dust and gas in a multiple-star system.
Scientists at the Universities of Bonn and Cardiff see good times approaching for astrophysicists after hatching a new observational strategy to distill detailed information from galaxies at the edge of the Universe.
Using a battery of observatories that included the ALMA and the Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have obtained the best view to date of a collision between two galaxies that took place when the universe was just a fraction of its current age.
General Dynamics-built radio telescope antennas give scientists a microscopic view of the universe that is thousands of light years away. NEWTON, N.C., June 25, 2014
Scientists recently upgraded the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) by installing an ultraprecise atomic clock at ALMA’s Array Operations Site, home to the observatory’s supercomputing correlator.
When all 64 MeerKAT antennas are operational, the instrument radio telescope will be sensitive enough to pick up a cell phone signal from Saturn. NEWTON, N.C., March 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
European Southern Observatory -- ESO, the European Southern Observatory, was created in 1962 to: "establish and operate an astronomical observatory in the southern hemisphere, equipped with powerful instruments, with the aim of furthering and organising collaboration in astronomy". ESO is supported by Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland and United Kingdom. Other countries have expressed interest to become a member as well. ESO...
