Atacama & La Tirana, Chile

Our journey around the globe starts off in this unearthly world of bubbling geysers, bizarre salt lakes and tranquil lagoons high in the Cordilleras.

In stark contrast recently inaugurated ALMA, the “Atacama Large Millimeter/sub-millimeter Array”, world’s most powerful telescope, where “astronomers are going to rewrite the history of the Universe”
