Latest news on "ALMA"

There is no end to the reports of success on the new Chilean super-telescope called "Alma" (Atacama Large Millimeter/sub-millimeter Array): Researchers recently reported they were now able to pinpoint the exact locations of over 100 of the most fertile star-forming galaxies in the early Universe having solved the mystery of their prolificacy. In just a few hours "Alma" captured as many observations of these galaxies as have been made by all similar telescopes worldwide over a span of more than a decade (source: Maria Schießl, editor at WEB.DE). This good news is a source of pride to us as well. The telescopes are moved along two axes – in azimuth and elevation. All gears required for it were produced by C.H. Schäfer.
