Conceptual image of ALMA, which is currently under construction. ALMA will consist of the“12m Array” of up to sixty-four 12 m telescopes, and “Atacama Compact Array (ACA)”of four 12m and twelve 7m telescopes.
Recently, ASIAA has joined the Atacama Large Millimeter/Submillimeter Array (ALMA) project, the largest ground based astronomical project ever carried out. The array is currently under construction in the Chajnantor area in the Atacama desert in northern Chile. ALMA will cover the wavelength range from 0.3 mm to 9 mm with an angular resolution of up to 4 milli-arcsec, giving 10 times sharper images than the Hubble Space Telescope.
