**FILE** The moon shines over radio antennas at the operations support facility of the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in the Atacama desert in northern Chile, one of the worlds largest astronomy projects, on Sept. 26, 2012. Linked as a single giant telescope, the radio antennas pick up wavelengths of light longer than anything visible to the human eye and colder than infrared telescopes, which are good at capturing images of distant suns but miss planets and clouds of gases from which stars are formed.
