Chile’s giant telescope looks for answers

Astronomers hope world’s largest telescope project will provide clues on how the universe formed.

Deep in the Chilean desert, the Atacama Large Millimeter/sub-millimeter Array, or ALMA, the largest telescope project on Earth, aims to shed light on how the universe was formed.

The ALMA will eventually have 66 radio antennae, with each 12-metre-high tower costing approximately $10m.
