PACE member leads article making use of ALMA data

On 25th of August, the article “Herschel-ATLAS and ALMA HATLAS J142935.3-002836, a lensed major merger at redshift 1.027” was published on Astronomy & Astrophysics journal. The research, lead by PACE member Hugo Messias, deals with the nature of a merger of galaxies at z=1.027 as seen by ALMA and other major observational facilities.

A coordinated world-wide press-release was issued by the media departments of institutes involved in this work (including ESO), resulting in a substantial media coverage (see, for example, the articles by El Mundo, CBS news, Forbes, … a compilation of media coverage is presented here).
