ALMA is an array of radio telescopes being constructed 5,000 metres above sea-level in the Atacama Desert of the Chilean Andes. When finished it will be the World's most advanced radio astronomy observatory (as of 2010). Photographed at the Antenna Test Facility (ATF) on the NRAO (National Radio Astronomy Observatory) Very Large Array (VLA) site near Socorro, New Mexico, USA, in July 2004.
