Film of the ALMA Telescope

Higher than any other ground based observatory, located in Chile, is the new ALMA milimeter wave length telescope. Only about a third of the dishes in the array are installed as of yet, but ALMA is the most powerful scopes of it's type. By 2013 all of it's 66 dishes will be installed, bringing ALMA to full power, but early results from the already onsite dishes are already giving us an idea of what is to come.

Check out the short film on the scope.
