This spectacular view of ALMA
This spectacular view of ALMA was taken from a small remote-controlled hexacopter using a camera weighing just 200 grams. This is among the first aerial images of the array taken since its inauguration in March 2013. These flights may have established a new altitude record for this type of helicopter, which was designed to operate much closer to sea level. © EFE/Ariel Marinkovic
