The ALMA radio telescope observatory in the Atacama Desert, Chile When it is completed in 2013 the site will consist of 66 linked satellite dishes spread across 16km of desert, allowing space experts to probe the oldest parts of the cosmos, produce images of previously unseen stars and planets, and discover how solar systems like ours are created.

The ALMA radio telescope image of carbon monoxide around the star Beta Pictoris (above) can be deprojected (below) to simulate a view looking down on the system, revealing the large concentration of gas in its outer reaches. For comparison, orbits within our solar system are shown for scale. Image released March 6, 2014. www.facebook.com/loveswish
