Atacama large millimeter array

The Carina Nebula glows in the sky above Chajnantor Plateau, in the Chilean Andes. In the foreground, shadowy figures of antennas of the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) stand. Carina Nebula lies about 7500 light-years from Earth in the constellation of Carina (The Keel). The cloud of glowing gas and dust represents the one of brightest nebulas in the sky. It contains several of the Milky Way%u2019s brightest and most massive known stars, such as Eta …

Thursday, Jan. 16, 2014: The antennas of the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) stand under a twilight sky on the Chajnantor Plateau, 16400 feet (5000 meters) above sea level, in Chile. Between the two groups of antennas lie the "Earth's shadow" and "Belt of Venus" phenomena, visible as the dark blue and light pink bands stretching across the sky. The planet Jupiter hangs above the mountain in the background. (Click image to see full panorama larger.) Image released January…

Biomarker found in space complicates search for life on exoplanets A molecule once thought to be a useful marker for life as we know it has been discovered around a young star and at a comet for the first time, suggesting these ingredients are inherited during the planet-forming phase.

New observations from the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) have revealed a remarkably thin spherical shell around U Antliae, a star located in the southern constellation of Antlia, about 900 light-years away from Earth.

Why is there a large ice ring around Fomalhaut? This interesting star -- easily visible in the night sky -- lies only about 25 light-years away and is known to be orbited by at least one planet, Dagon, as well as several inner dust disks. More intriguing, perhaps, is an outer ring, first discovered about 20 years ago, that has an unusually sharp inner boundary. The featured recent image by the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) shows this outer ring with complete and unprecedented detail…
