Great conversation about the science coming from Alma. Oldest water discovered so far in one of the early galaxies. So perhaps we will know where other life forms could have been developing…and eventually get an answer to the question whether we are alone out here. Thanks for explaining this as simply as possible to non astronomers. Rgds, Dirk
