light can penetrate dust clouds, revealing details at the center of the galaxy and in stellar nurseries not visible at other wavelengths.
That infrared red light, thanks to the expansion of the universe, gets converted into millimeter and submillimeter
wavelengths that ALMA can detect.
The astronomers used HST to capture the light from stars which tells us the "current" (as of when the light was emitted, 11 billion years ago) shape of the galaxies, while ALMA observed submillimeter
waves from cold clouds of gas and dust, where new stars are being formed.
An international team of astronomers used the APEX telescope with its submillimeter
camera, LABOCA, built at the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy (MPIfR), to survey the inner galaxy to search for the birthplaces of the most massive stars currently forming in the Milky Way.

optical mirrors as small as 0.

In collaboration with the NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center on June 2, 2001, NIST successfully deployed a new type of superconducting detector at the Caltech Submillimeter
Observatory at the summit of Mauna Kea, Hawaii.
Japan initially planned to build a Large Millimeter and Submillimeter
Array of 50 antennas each with a 10-meter diameter.
It is now beginning to be applied to shorter-wavelength radiation in the submillimeter
Non-invasive CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery: The CyberKnife offers a non-invasive alternative to surgery for treating tumors anywhere in the body with submillimeter
accuracy - enabling doctors to spare healthy tissue, reduce side effects, and in many cases cut treatment from six weeks down to just a few days.
The paper, titled "The circumgalactic medium of submillimeter
The researchers were then able to study the abundance and location of newly formed molecules - especially silicon monoxide (SiO) and carbon monoxide (CO), which shine brightly at the short submillimeter
wavelengths that ALMA can perceive.
