ALMA … A Portal on the Universe
High in the barren Atacama Desert at 16,500 feet, on the virtually rainless Chajnantor plateau of northern Chile, lies an interferometer composed of 66 individual radio dishes, built to study the early dawn of the cosmos, 13 billion years ago.
Called the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA), it was completed this year by a league of nations and now stands as the largest telescope in the world. Its work in peering across time to uncover the light of the first stars has only just begun.
Nothing to me signifies hope, a yearning to know, and the communion we seek with the cosmos more than the sight of a brigade of radio dishes pointed skyward. Here are some personal pictures taken by astronomer Mike Stogoski of the ALMA dishes and their surroundings…not too different from Mars.
Further information about ALMA can be found at the European Observatory Website.
