Atacama Pathfinder Experiment (APEX)

The Atacama Pathfinder Experiment is a modified ALMA prototype antenna operated as a single dish. APEX allows us to observe cold dust and gas in our own Milky Way and in distant galaxies, in the southern sky. This improves our understanding of the structure and chemistry of planetary atmospheres, dying stars, regions of star formation and distant starburst galaxies.
