Gamma-ray Burst Buried in Dust-1600

About this Image

This space wallpaper shows an artist’s conception of the environment around GRB 020819B based on ALMA observations. Observations from the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) have for the first time directly mapped out the molecular gas and dust in the host galaxies of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) — the biggest explosions in the Universe.
