He joined Media Lario in 1993, where he is currently responsible for R & D activities for future applications of electroformed mirror technology and has been project manager for the design, manufacturing and verification of high accuracy panels for the prototype for the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA).
Then, more than 2 quadrillion miles away and hundreds of years later, Jorgensen and his colleagues can read the radio waves emitted by the evaporated gas with the Atacama Large Millimeter Array telescopes, located in Chile.
Next, researchers hope to measure an accurate redshift for the galaxies, which will require more powerful instruments like the Large Millimeter Telescope or Atacama Large Millimeter Array. They also plan to search for more examples of this new "species" of extremely red galaxies.
On the bright side, freeing up some money will enable the NSF to increase support to build expensive but cutting-edge optical and radio observatories that have enormous discovery potential--such as the Giant Segmented Mirror Telescope, the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope, the Advanced Technology Solar Telescope, the Expanded Very Large Array, the Square Kilometre Array, and the Atacama Large Millimeter Array. The report also recommends that attention be given to the funding of individual research grants, a particularly critical need for young astronomers.
Yet it is here, more than 5 km above sea level, that a wonderful instrument called the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) will be constructed over the next six years.
The 64-antenna Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) under construction in Chile will be a lot more sensitive than CARMA.
