A large hot molecular cloud around a very young star was discovered by ALMA. This hot cloud is about ten times larger than those found around typical solar-mass baby stars, which indicates that the star formation process has more diversi…
Astronomers have used the ALMA telescope to get their first glimpse of a fascinating stage of star formation in which planets forming around a young star are helping the star itself continue to grow, resolving a longstanding mystery.
This beautiful space wallpaper is an artist's illustration of Supernova which is based on real data and reveals the cold, inner regions of the exploded star's remnants (in red) where tremendous amounts of dust were detected and imaged by ALMA.

A very powerful magnetic field has been detected at the edge of a supermassive black hole in the distant PKS galaxy. The magnetic field is far more powerful than anything previously detected in the core of a galaxy.
Astronomers reveal supermassive black hole's intense magnetic field Astronomers from Chalmers University of Technology have used the giant telescope Alma to reveal an extremely powerful magnetic field very close to a supermassive black hole in a distant g
Bubbly Newborn Star | Combined observations from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope and the newly completed Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile have revealed the throes of stellar birth, as never before, in the well-studied object known as HH 46/47.
An image released on October 2011 show the Antennae Galaxies (also known as NGC 4038 and are a pair of distorted colliding spiral galaxies about 70 million light-years away, in the constellation of Corvus (The Crow).
Birth of a star! This image of Herbig-Haro object HH combines radio observations acquired with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) with much shorter wavelength visible light observations from ESO’s New Technology Telescope (NTT).
