Discovery of Phosphine in the Atmosphere of Venus

Media Lario S.r.l. congratulates the team at the ALMA Telescope Array in Atacama Chile and the entire scientific team involved in the discovery of phosphine in the atmosphere of Venus indicating the possibility of life on our neighbouring planet, as was announced on 13 September in published scientific papers submitted to the International Journal of Astrobiology.

Media Lario manufactured light-weight Nickel laminated optics using our patented Repli-formed Optics™ process for the full telescope array of the ALMA observatory. Over 3000 panels of over several square meters in size were made to precise shape and surface specifications using a layer of nickel surface coating only a small fraction of a millimeter in thickness. Repli-formed Optics™ is a fast, replicable optical manufacturing process, resulting in high-spec optics which are light weight and qualified for harsh environments.
