This video news release includes the highlights of the ALMA inauguration ceremony held in Chile on 13 March 2013. As well as the ceremony there are many breathtaking images taken with ALMA itself and views of its unique environment in the Atacama Desert. This event marks the completion of all the major systems of the giant telescope and the formal transition from a construction project to a fully fledged observatory. ALMA is a partnership between Europe, North America and East Asia in cooperation with the Republic of Chile.
