Project Description


The Atacama Large Millimeter/ submillimeter Array (ALMA) will be the major new facility for observations in the millimeter/submillimeter regime. It will enable transformational research into the physics of the cold Universe, probe the first stars and galaxies, and directly image the formation of planets.
