Welcome to the ALMA website for kids!
Discover the world's largest observatory with Talma and Mathias ...
Did someone say astronomy for kids?😊 Say no more! We have revamped #ALMAKids📡,
now available in 4 languages at

Follow ALMA’s discoveries along with Talma!
We have just launched a new series of chapters sharing the adventures of the stars of ALMA Kids: Talma and her astronomer friend Mathias, who will take you through the discoveries of the largest radio telescope in the world, with simple and entertaining explanations.
These new comics are the end product of David Fernández’ internship as audiovisual communicator, specializing in scripts, at UNIACC University. David, together with the observatory’s Communications and Outreach team, have breathed new life into Talma and her friends. Be sure not to miss a single discovery by following them on our social media and our website for kids,!

Atacameño children produce a video on the Yakana myth

Members of Liceo Likan Antai’s Academy of Astronomy in San Pedro de Atacama, northern Chile, made a video of the ancestral Myth of Yakana, or the constellation of the llama.

For Andean inhabitants, most constellations visible in the sky were not made up of groups of stars but rather the black spots or empty spaces between them.

The children chose the myth of the Yakana and worked with their teacher, Carola Torrejón, and the visual artist Benjamín Quezada, with the support of ALMA. “We had to adapt the myth and create a new script, preparing the characters and background for the animation,” said Gabriela Aguilar, one of the 15 7th- to 11th-grade students in the Academy.

The group used the stopmotion technique to make the video, using handmade puppets of llamas and llama herders, and drawings, wool and cutouts for the scenery. Students learned about the photo process for animation and audio recording through 4 stopmotion workshops.

The videos were also recorded by children. In the Spanish version, 8-year old Emiliano Quezada recorded the voice, and in the English version, 10-year old Vivian Corder, daughter of one of the ALMA astronomers, recorded the voice.


The Earth’s star, the Sun, has secrets that scientists have been trying to figure out for decades! See how @NASASun's Parker #SolarProbe aims to spill all the Sun’s secrets once it launches this Saturday! MORE INFO >>

It's Surprisingly Hard to Go to the Sun

The Sun contains 99.8 percent of the mass in our solar system. Its gravitational pull is what keeps everything here, from tiny Mercury to the gas giants to the Oort Cloud, 186 billion miles away. But even though the Sun has such a powerful pull, it's surprisingly hard to actually go to the Sun: It takes 55 times more energy to go to the Sun than it does to go to Mars.

Why is it so difficult? The answer lies in the same fact that keeps Earth from plunging into the Sun: Our planet is traveling very fast — about 67,000 miles per hour — almost entirely sideways relative to the Sun. The only way to get to the Sun is to cancel that sideways motion.

Since Parker Solar Probe will skim through the Sun's atmosphere, it only needs to drop 53,000 miles per hour of sideways motion to reach its destination, but that's no easy feat. In addition to using a powerful rocket, the Delta IV Heavy, Parker Solar Probe will perform seven Venus gravity assists over its seven-year mission to shed sideways speed into Venus' well of orbital energy. These gravity assists will draw Parker Solar Probe's orbit closer to the Sun for a record approach of just 3.83 million miles from the Sun's visible surface on the final orbits.

Though it's shedding sideways speed to get closer to the Sun, Parker Solar Probe will pick up overall speed, bolstered by Sun's extreme gravity — so it will also break the record for the fastest-ever human-made objects, clocking in at 430,000 miles per hour on its final orbits.
