Really Cool Video About The Universe to Watch

Observatory at the top of the world provides rare view of outer space.

Scientists from around the world are building the world’s most advanced radio telescope in Chile’s Atacama Desert, on a plateau half-way between Earth and space above 40 percent of the planet’s atmosphere.
The observatory, referred to by the acronym ALMA, officially known as the Atacama Large Millimeter/Submillimeter Array, is the highest ever built. Located at 16,500 feet, the antennas will pick up radio and microwave signals from the edge of the universe to see things in space that were once invisible.
Eventually there will be 66 antennas spread across the plateau. All of them can be pointed at the same time at a patch of outer space.
