Both the scientists at ALMA and the Pope are listening to God.
Reminds me of the early years following the "fall" of Rome.
The Byzantine period had kind of a Schizo split between Secular and Religious heads of State.
They are using the ALMA detectors to look back in time to the earliest evidence of Gods creation.
The electromagnetic residue from 12 billion years ago has been so heavily Lorenz contracted and gravitationally lensed that getting a clear picture
is difficult. I've always believed that there are a lot more radio observables in the night sky than there are radio sources. Sounds like they are
finally combining some of these observables so that a map of the older radio sources will give us a better idea of how the universe came into
Perhaps the detectors at ALMA are much more massive than would be practical to build in space and can be easily swapped out as needed. A a fleet of
supercharged trucks has a lot less overhead than a space program.
