Mankind has a new eye on the heavens today with the inauguration of the world’s largest telescope in Chile.
The ALMA array is high in the Atacama desert, 5000 metres above sea level. Once fully operational its 66 radio antennas spread over a 10-kilometre radius for maximum efficiency will be able to probe deeper into the universe than ever before, and with a resolution 10 times sharper than the orbiting Hubble telescope.
