2013 // CHILE
It is located in Chile, in the Atacama Desert, and is the largest and most advanced astronomical observatory in the world, fruit of the international partnership of several countries. It consisted of the manufacture of 3 large reservoirs, 30 meters long and 3.5 meters high, and transportation to the Chanjnantor Valley in the Atacama Desert, at almost 3000m altitude. The reservoirs were delivered in March 2012, and the observatory’s energy production station is already up and running.
In the near future, the ALMA Observatory project will help us understand how the elements we are constituted have come to Earth and give an idea of how the future could be.
