To boldly show: World's most expensive telescope takes first pictures of deepest space in quest for more knowledge of outer universe This is the remarkable first picture taken by the new $1.3billion radio telescope sitting high in the Chilean Andes. It shows two galaxies colliding in a view no other telescope on Earth or in space could capture. The shot is a teasing glimpse of the capabilities of the Atacama Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array telescope - this picture has been taken using only a quarter of the antennae it will have when it comes into full operation in 2013.

The combined image shown would not be visible at all to visible-light and infrared telescopes. The amazing shot of the Antennae Galaxies (otherwise known as NGC 4038 and 4039) shows the pair of interacting galaxies in the constellation Corvus. The galaxies are around 70 million light-years away and were captured by ALMA using two different wavelength ranges.
