ALMA is a large interferometric set of telescopes somewhat similar in concept to the SKA but working at much shorter wavelengths and designed to answer quite different scientific problems. It is a collaboration between US, European and Japanese radio astronomers and is situated on the Chajnantor plateau, at an altitude of 5 000 metres in the Chilean Andes.
