General presentation

On the foothills of the large plateau of Bure, in the Dévoluy, hide enormous antennas that point to the sky, observe the universe and explore the stars. This observatory of the Institute for Millimeter Radio Astronomy (IRAM) is one of the largest in the world.

The NOEMA (NOrthern Extended Millimeter Array) observatory, located on the Plateau de Bure in the French Hautes-Alpes, is the most powerful radio telescope.
The decor is located in the southern Alps, in the Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region.
