26 February, 2013 / Read time: 1 minute

This video presents the international collaboration that led to the construction of the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in northern Chile. Institutions from different countries in North America, Europe and East Asia have joined forces to build the antennas and develop the technology needed to operate the observatory. 

Two astronomers and an engineer share their testimony alongside images showing the contribution of each institution to the project and the human work behind this feat, to show why ALMA has become one of the most important tools in the world to study the Cosmos.
