Home The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array at its 16,500 ft elevation site in northern Chile. Still under construction, ALMA is the most powerful telescope of its kind in the world. At the time of this photo, 19 radio telescopes were in the array. Upon completion in 2013, 66 radio telescopes will fan over a nearly 100 square mile area. (W.
