Pic of the Day

Diego Salvatierra at the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile, May 26, 2012. It might be the world’s most ambitious astronomical project.

Diego gets his picture here because he was intrepid enough to make the journey to the back of beyond, and because he got five antennaes and a mountain to be in the picture with him.

Well, they're not being used as an (interferometer) array in THAT photo:(

Well, no, but you know how hard it is to get telescopes to be in the picture. They always want to looking at something. And mountains, criminently, you'd think you could count on them to stand still, but no, always wandering off just when you are ready to release the shutter.
