The European Southern Observatory has published a video clip on the Internet showing a full-scale computer animation of the Atacama Large Millimetre Array (ALMA) at the future site of this vast astronomical facility.

ALMA is one of the largest ground-based astronomy projects of the next decade. It will be built up from around 64 antennae (each 12 metres alone) and located at the high altitude (5000 metres) Llano de Chajnantor site in northern Chile.

The release of the video clip is timed to coincide with a conference in Washington DC, USA, on 'Science with a large millimetre telescope array'.
