This indistinct blob is supermassive star Betelgeuse

2 days agoHumor / odd : Boing Boing

Imaged by the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA), this is the most detailed depiction yet of the enormous supergiant Betelgeuse, 600 light-years off in the constellation Orion and 1400 times the size of the sun. The star is just about eight million years old, but is already on the verge of becoming a supernova. Show More Summary

ALMA finds ingredient of life around infant Sun-like stars

Two teams of astronomers have harnessed the power of the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile to detect the prebiotic complex organic molecule methyl isocyanate in the multiple star system IRAS 16293-2422. One team was co-led by Rafael Martín-Doménech at the Centro de Astrobiología in Madrid, Spain, and Víctor M. Show More Summary

ALMA eyes icy ring around young planetary system

An international team of astronomers using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) has made the first complete millimeter-wavelength image of the ring of dusty debris surrounding the young star Fomalhaut. This remarkably...Show More Summary

ALMA investigates 'DeeDee,' a distant, dim member of our solar system

(National Radio Astronomy Observatory) Using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), astronomers have revealed extraordinary details about a recently discovered far-flung member of our solar system, the planetary body 2014 UZ224, more informally known as DeeDee.

ALMA investigates 'DeeDee,' a distant, dim member of our solar system

Using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), astronomers have revealed extraordinary details about a recently discovered far-flung member of our solar system, the planetary body 2014 UZ224, more informally known as DeeDee.

Explosive Star Formation Caught On Camera

Astronomers using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array in northern Chile captured images from a stellar nursery about 1,350 light-years away from Earth.

Astronomers take a closer look at a young circumbinary disk

(Phys.org)—In a research paper published Apr. 3 on arXiv.org, astronomers presented a close-up view of the circumbinary disk HD 142527 obtained with the Atacama Large Millimeter and submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile. The new observations reveal the morphology and kinematics of the gas and dust emission in this disk.

This Mind-Blowing Stellar Explosion Is a Beautiful Mess

3 months agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmodo

When it comes to cool space pictures, supernovae get all the credit. After all, who doesn’t love a good star death? But new images from the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile reveal a stunning star birth that gives those supernova snaps a run for their money. It looks just like a firework,… Read more...

The ALMA array in Chile joins global VLBI arrays for unprecedented leap in resolving power

A powerful new array of radio telescopes is being deployed for the first time this week, as the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile joins a global network of antennas poised to make some of the highest resolution images that astronomers have ever obtained.

ALMA Spots A Dark Radio 'Hole'

This is the first time the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array has been used to image and measure what’s known as the Sunyaev-Zel’dovich effect.

ALMA's ability to see a 'cosmic hole' confirmed

Researchers using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) successfully imaged a radio "hole" around a galaxy cluster 4.8 billion light-years away. This is the highest resolution image ever taken of such a hole caused by the Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effect (SZ effect). Show More Summary

Mysterious faint object detected in the vicinity of a quadruply lensed quasar

(Phys.org)—Astronomers have spotted a mysterious faint object in the vicinity of a quadruply lensed quasar designated MG 0414+0534. The object, which was discovered using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), appears to be a dusty, dark dwarf galaxy or an ultra-diffuse galaxy (UDG). The findings were presented January 19 in a paper published on arXiv.org.

Astronomers reveal never-before-seen features of a ‘hole’ on the sun that could swallow 2 Earths

Images from the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) reveal amazing details of the sun, including a giant sunspot that is almost twice as large as the diameter of Earth.

ALMA looks straight into the sun

5 months agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmag

For the human eye, staring straight into the sun is a daunting (and unwise) task. For the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile, peering into the heart of our nearest galactic fireball is a walk in the park, as...Show More Summary

ALMA starts observing the sun

(ESO) New images taken with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile have revealed otherwise invisible details of our sun, including a new view of the dark, contorted center of a sunspot that is nearly twice the diameter of the Earth. Show More Summary

ALMA reveals sun in new light

New images from the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) reveal stunning details of our Sun, including the dark, contorted center of an evolving sunspot that is nearly twice the diameter of the Earth.

Breathtaking! European Southern Observatory Facilities In Aerial Views | Video

The Very Large Telescope (VLT), Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), La Silla Observatory, and the future site of the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT) are flown over by drones and briefly explained.

First light for band 5 at ALMA

(ESO) The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile has begun observing in a new range of the electromagnetic spectrum. This has been made possible thanks to new receivers installed at the telescope's antennas, which can detect radio waves with wavelengths from 1.4 to 1.8 millimeters -- a range previously untapped by ALMA.

VLA, ALMA team up to give first look at birthplaces of most current stars

Astronomers have gotten their first look at exactly where most of today's stars were born. To do so, they used the National Science Foundation's Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) and the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) to look at distant galaxies seen as they were some 10 billion years ago.

ALMA measures size of seeds of planets

(National Institutes of Natural Sciences) Researchers using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), have for the first time, achieved a precise size measurement of small dust particles around a young star through radio-wave polarization. Show More Summary
