This program traces the engineering, construction, and scientific discoveries of the most powerful observatory on Earth: the ALMA telescope in the Chilean Andes. Viewers are taken on a journey both across the globe and throughout our universe to discover how this mammoth radio telescope works and how its observations are revolutionizing astronomy. Through breathtaking footage – including cinematic 3-D animation, dramatic aerials of the ALMA site, and live coverage of the first large-scale observation – the film reveals the incredible lengths to which humans will go to quench their thirst for knowledge.
