ALMA Transporters ascend to the high site
The two ALMA Transporters, giant 28-wheeled trucks that lift, power, and haul the telescopes for major servicing or during reconfigurations of the array. The one with the red accents is named Otto, after Otto Rettermaier, the president of Scheuerle, the company that made them. The one with the green assets is Lore, named for his wife.
