Alma’s false-colour image of the double star Mira

May 29, 2015 07:00 BST Chalmers University of Technology Alma’s false-colour image of the double star Mira, 420 light years from Earth. The two stars, separated by a distance similar to the distance between the Sun and Pluto, are imaged so sharply that astronomers can discern surface details. The ellipse in the lower left corner shows the size of the smallest details that Alma can distinguish.

The Alma telescope

May 29, 2015 07:00 BST Chalmers University of Technology Alma on the Chajnantor Plateau, located at an altitude of 5000 meters in the Chilean Andes. The large antennas have a diameter of 12 metres, while 12 smaller antennas have a diameter of 7 metres. This photo was taken in December 2012, four months prior to the Alma inauguration.

An example of a plug-in hybrid

Apr 21, 2015 07:00 BST Chalmers University of Technology The method can be used to calculate the cost-efficiency of plug-in hybrids such as Volvo XC60 Plug-in Hybrid Concept.

Alma antennas under the Milky Way

Apr 16, 2015 19:00 BST Chalmers University of Technology The giant telescope Alma, made up of 66 individual antennas and located at 5000 altitude in northern Chile, has revealed the intense magnetic field close to a supermassive black hole. In this image, taken during the ESO Ultra HD (UHD) Expedition, the central parts of our galaxy the Milky Way can be seen above the telescope.

A supermassive black hole and its intense magnetic field (artist's impression)

Apr 16, 2015 19:00 BST Chalmers University of Technology This artist’s impression shows the surroundings of a supermassive black hole, typical of that found at the heart of many galaxies. The black hole itself is surrounded by a brilliant accretion disc of very hot, infalling material and, further out, a dusty torus. There are also often high-speed jets of material ejected at the black hole’s poles that can extend huge distances into space.
