In this video, former North American ALMA Project Director, Dr. Adrian Russell, shows us the gatehouse at the site granted by the Republic of Chile to build the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA).

From there, the 43-kilometer road extends past the Operations Support Facility (OSF) at 3000 meters and up to the Array Operations Site (AOS) at 5000 meters.
