ALMA Enhancement

The Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) is the most powerful radio telescope for observing the Universe. With the Band 5 receiver, developed and produced in Europe thanks to FP6, ALMA will study a wide range of phenomena from observing objects from the earliest days of the Universe to the Solar system planetary studies, gaining deeper knowledge of the Earth's climate changes. ALMA has and will continue to create new jobs in European industry. It will operate as an observatory located on the Chajnantor plateau at 5000 meters altitude in Chile.
At our stand, we will present the ALMA observatory and exhibit a Band 5 receiver.
