The telescope is called the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array or "ALMA for short. And, it's allowing us to see the universe like we never have before. ALMA will be a telescope made up of 66 antennas, at 16,500 feet, in the desert of Atacama, in Chile," says Kartik Sheth, an astronomer with the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) in Charlottesville, Va. With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), Sheth is part of a team of astronomers putting this new array to work.
