Major Radio Telescope Levels Up to Get Unprecedented Views of the Early Universe

The Northern Extended Millimeter Array (NOEMA), a powerful radio telescope in the French Alps, has reached full capacity. On September 30, the telescope, which includes 12 antennas, was inaugurated and has become the most powerful millimeter radio telescope in the northern hemisphere.

The telescope will make unprecedented observations of the cosmos, as it is able to capture light that has traveled to Earth for 13 billion years, when the universe was about 600 million years old.
