A joint project be­tween Ar­gentina and Brazil to ad­vance their as­tro­nom­i­cal re­search by cre­at­ing one of the world’s high­est tele­scopes is about to take shape. The equip­ment has now reached Ar­gentina, to be as­sem­bled into the am­bi­tious Large Latin Amer­i­can Mil­lime­tre Ar­ray (Llama). The acro­nym makes ref­er­ence to the Span­ish word for “flame” as well as the South Amer­i­can an­i­mal. To be lo­cated in the Alto Chor­ril­los val­ley, the tele­scope will be used to study the evo­lu­tion of the uni­verse, black holes and the for­ma­tion of gal­ax­ies and stars.
