Zooming in to the galaxies discovered by ALMA that are evolving into a galaxy cluster. The outer field is from data taken by the Hershel Space Observatory. The middle image -- a portion of a much-wider survey by NSF\'s South Pole Telescope -- uncovered the distant galactic source that was studied by ALMA to reveal the 14 galaxies.
