Ice Ring around Nearby Star Fomalhaut - The featured recent image by the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) shows this outer ring with complete and unprecedented detail -- in pink -- superposed on a Hubble image of the Fomalhaut system in blue. A leading theory holds that this ring resulted from numerous violent collisions involving icy comets and planetesimals, the component objects of planets, while the ring boundaries are caused by the gravity of yet unseen planets

Astronomers using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) telescope have observed the growth of a young star and its planets. The HD142527 system is located about 450 light-years from Earth. An artist's conception of HD142527 system is pictured above.

Astronomers have used the ALMA telescope to get their first glimpse of a fascinating stage of star formation in which planets forming around a young star are helping the star itself continue to grow, resolving a longstanding mystery.

Astronomers using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) have identified a so-called dust trap — a region where dust particles can grow by clumping together — in a dynamic ring of gas and dust, known as a circumstellar disk, surrounding the young star V1247 Orionis.

Astronomers reveal supermassive black hole's intense magnetic field                                                                                                                                          Astronomers from Chalmers University of Technology have used the giant telescope Alma to reveal an extremely powerful magnetic field very close to a supermassive black hole in a distant galaxy. The results appear in the 17 April 2015 issue of the journal Science.

An unusual spiral structure has been discovered around the Milky Way star R Sculptoris, a red giant star located about 1,500 light years away toward the constellation of the Sculptor (Sculptoris). The star was observed with the new Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), the most powerful telescopic array observing near millimeter wavelengths. Data from ALMA observations was used to create a 3D visualization of the gas and dust immediately surrounding the star.

The bizarre spiral structure encircling a dying star was spotted by the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) telescope, and is believed to be a hidden companion star orbiting the star.

ALMA discovers large 'hot' cocoon around a small baby star

A large hot molecular cloud around a very young star was discovered by ALMA. This hot cloud is about ten times larger than those found around typical solar-mass baby stars, which indicates that the star formation process has more diversi…

ALMA reveals intense magnetic field close to supermassive black hole

A very powerful magnetic field has been detected at the edge of a supermassive black hole in the distant PKS galaxy. The magnetic field is far more powerful than anything previously detected in the core of a galaxy.

Striking images of a young supernova brimming with fresh dust have been captured by a telescope in the Chilean desert.  It is the first time astronomers have witnessed the genesis of the grains which formed galaxies in the early universe.  The pictures were captured by the Alma (Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array) telescope.

Supernova 'dust factory' pictured

This beautiful space wallpaper is an artist's illustration of Supernova which is based on real data and reveals the cold, inner regions of the exploded star's remnants (in red) where tremendous amounts of dust were detected and imaged by ALMA.

This is a composite image of the ADFS-27 system, which shows how the galaxy pair appeared to researchers over the course of several observations. The large background image was taken by the European Space Agency's Herschel Space Observatory, and the object was then detected by the European Space Observatory's Atacama Pathfinder Experiment (APEX) telescope, shown in the middle image. The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) was able to identify two galaxies, seen in the image…
