The Northern Extended Millimeter Array (NOEMA), one of Europe’s biggest facilities for astronomical research, operated by the IRAM reached its full sensitivity with the commissioning of its 12th Antenna.
Eight years after the inauguration of the first NOEMA antenna, the twelfth NOEMA antenna has joined the array. With this step NOEMA will be ready to make unpreceded observations of the celestial millimeter wave radio spectrum which instructs researchers in France, Germany, Spain and from many other countries around the world on the physical and chemical processes which rule the evolution of the cosmos from its very early phase until today.
