ALMA COVID-19Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, which has also spread into Chile, the ALMA director and executives decided to suspend ALMA operations until the situation normalizes. The call for proposals for Cycle 8, which was open during the beginning of the pandemic, has also been suspended. This bad news also affects our project, since we will not be able to submit observing proposals, no new data will be produced, and proprietary period for data will be prolonged and not accessible to the public.
