Board game "ALMAsteroids"
Read time: 1 minute
ALMA is more connected to asteroids than you think. Studying these space rocks is very important if we want to understand our cosmic origins and prevent possible asteroid collisions with Earth. Although the probability is low, it never ceases to exist.
ALMA observes millimetric and submillimetric radio waves, capturing images from the radiation produced by asteroids. Identifyiang these is important because no two asteroids are alike. They all have different sizes and compositions that have not changed since the Solar System was created.
Commemorate with us on June 30,
International Asteroid Day!
