Bigger and Better Telescopes

Here’s an introduction to the next generation of mega-telescopes being brought on line in Chile to help solve the biggest mysteries of the Universe. The focus is on ALMA, or the Atacama Large Millimeter/Submillimeter Array. A joint project of Europe, North America and Asia, ALMA will be composed of 66 high-precision antennas when it becomes fully operational next year. The report also introduces the European Extremely Large Telescope, or E-ELT, which will be built on a nearby mountaintop in Chile, becoming the world’s biggest eye on the sky. H/T Best of Science
