ALMA radio astronomy observatory. 3D computer artwork of an ALMA (Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array) radio telescope being moved into position using a special transporter (yellow). 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). These transporters can be used to re-arrange the layout of the telescopes according to the observatory's needs.
