Yesterday, for the first time, we were able to see a picture of a black hole – a one-way door out of our Universe. A truly amazing breakthrough in science and something thought to be impossible just a generation ago! And Cosylab feels immensely proud to have been a part of that story.

ALMA, the radiotelescope array in Chile, was one of the radio telescopes that contributed to collecting the data that led to the picture of the black hole.

ALMA is one of Cosylab’s first and most loyal clients. Cosylab started working with ALMA in 2001 on the development of its control system.
