10 Cosmic Photographs of the ALMA Space Observatory

Share

Have you ever wanted to take a look into the past? Adhemar Duro is a Brazil-based astrophotographer and long exposure enthusiast. Duro’s location provides him uncanny access to the ALMA Observatory at the OSF, an array consisting of 66 12-meter and 7-meter diameter radio telescopes. The ALMA antennas are located in the Chilean Andes at an altitude of 5000 meters and the site offers an exceptional atmospheric transparency and view of the desert sky and stars around.

ALMA is an international partnership between the United States, Europe, Canada, East Asia and the Republic of Chile. ALMA costed more than one billion US dollars to construct, making it the most expensive ground-based telescope in operation! The ALMA project is looking to provide insight into the birth of stars during the early universe and also detailed imaging of local star and planet formation. Check out some amazing photos by Duro capturing both the ALMA Observatory and Milky Way sky above.
