What is an erosion in the head? Is that another word for wound? Bullet hole? Why would someone kill this man?

Yeah, that term "erosion" seems to be strange for me too. I think what they mean is a "hole" anyway.

Well, we can't confirm that but it's the first thing to think about it. This is not good. Let's see if by tomorrow the media talk about it, or try to ignore it.

What do you mean? Aren't they still building it? What could they have found out about our sun? That other arrays haven't found? Isn't this facility being built to study stars other than our sun? I may be way off with these questions, if so forgive my ignorance.

ALMA is operational since October 2011, but not 100%.

Hahaha.....good one. Yeah, I also found funny that comment. Police is investigating this as possible homicide and that member solved the case already.


because of which investigates a possible involvement of third parties.

Erosion is used in medicine to refer to the eating away of the surface tissue by chemical or physical processes.


uk.ask.com...


Definitions: 1. A wearing away or a state of being worn away, as by friction or pressure. 2. A shallow ulcer; in the stomach and intestine, an ulcer limited to the mucosa, with no penetration of the muscularis mucosa. 3. Chemically induced tooth loss, occurring mainly through acid dissolution. When the cause is unknown, it is referred to as idiopathic erosion.

Don't know what to make of this as its statistics and whanot, which isn't my area of expertise. It's a PDF entitled 'The Progress of ALMA-J' aka ALMA Japan..

Progress of ALMA-J

Could give some hints to a possible motive?

edit: looks like the pdf is the evolution of the project, like statistics about the equipment

What findings would those be? Considering the project has nothing to do with observing the sun and as far as I know isn't even fully operational yet...


It will enable transformational research into the physics of the cold Universe, probe the first stars and galaxies, and directly image the formation of planets. When completed, ALMA will be comprised of a giant array of fifty 12-m antennas, which can be configured to achieve baselines up to 16 km.
